The Wooded Place

Picture courtesy of Mantic Ritual

The wooded place

The sky of slate

The gleaming sacred blade

The hooded face

The cry of hate

The screaming naked maid

The heathen spell

The kiss of death

The weathered graven stone

The scene from hell

The hiss of breath

The tethered maiden’s groan

The ranted curse

The proffered knife

The mud-filled stinking hole

The chanted verse

 The offered life

The blood-filled drinking bowl

The church bell tolls

The time is near

The pagan’s knife is plunged

The tortured souls

The primal fear

The maiden’s life expunged
