Creseida's Song Book
« on: Today at 04:36:00 AM »
[Each song is written in Vaasi with a page for translations into High Mordentish and Common. Music notes are inked in beneath each line, the pages also intended as music sheets. Beneath each song, at the bottom, is the sketching of a harp made from barbed vines.]

Fate of the Dirgist


Each night, I step into the dark forest.
I can not refuse his invitation.
His presence cloying yet the bitterest,
Unable to resist his abduction.
Drawn deeper into wasted woodland I fall,
Beyond the gaze of Luna, the song plays!
There the danse macabre sweeps all away.
The dead cavort in Death's grim thrall.
A forced celebration sepulchral!
Caught so in grasp, of this chilling display...

*\,/'\,/'\,/'\,/'\,/*

Skeletal hands beckons me forth gently,
The reaper's withered arms, wide to embrace.
I gaze upon Death's rictus contently,
Drawn close wrapped in oblivion, displaced.
Consoling whispers which he does confide.
A profound longing of souls so desired.
How can I let my beloved languish?
Such souls I shall deliver gratified!
A sea of slaughter my love does provide,
Dancing amongst the choir of anguish...

*\,/'\,/'\,/'\,/'\,/*

The people did weep bitter tears and wail!
Atop my throne of bone, I stared, irate.
They cried weakly that darkness would prevail.
My fate appears sealed, then shall I restate?
Is this not what I was destined to be?
A doomed mouthpiece of the damned, driven out!
Why can you not see the truth of it all?
I sing for solace, not as a banshee...
Alas, few listen despite how I shout.
I will not rest now, for I cannot fall...
