A World of Blood:

The spirits whisper on a chilling wind
As the blood continues to flow.
I can hear the demons screaming within
As the darkness continues to grow...

Humankind will always be foolish;
Rash decisions are an instinctive need.
But how could they have forgotten our ways;
Tradition is lost to greed...

The zealous will kill the innocent again
As the greedy play out a game of chess.
A book of gods becomes a creed;
It is a ragged shell at best...

My sisters die in the tens of hundreds
And innocent girls are slaughtered like swine.
I'm afraid that in this dying world;
The God of Blood shall dine...

The blind shall follow in his burning steps;
They will see within him a flame and fire.
And he knows that the hearts of passionate men
Are easily laced with glorious desire...

In dreams he calls and grants them strength
He sends his 'angels' to enchant the night.
He turns the blind into seeing creatures
And robs them of the light...

But it is here we stand in final defiance
We witches are the last of sisters three...
Midea, Fione and Lady Prinstine;
We shall fight for what is free...

"Come demons, from the mouth of this cave you shall not pass!"

-Chen Yuan Wen, 28th April 2012

Hey there, if you like my work and want to see more, feel free to drop me a fave ^^.

AUTHOR'S COMMENT:

Arrr, the THIRD release of WITCH WEEK. Basically, I wanted to do something a little more heroic. Witches are always portrayed as being aligned with the devil, but what if the exact opposite was true.

Come, let me show you a different point of view...

me, a free thinker says that nothing is good nor bad, who knows, the 'angel' might be a 'devil' any way you see it, it is human words anyway

A world of blood? o.o Gonna take a bit to clean that up! - Great work, as usual! Very well written. I got some chills from the first line of the last stanza (I believe that's the word for them, I'm terrible at remembering the terms for poetry!) .. "But it is here we stand in final defiance" ... Very epic! Just need some dramatic theme music!

Only point of confusion is "tens of hundreds". That's a little like saying 十千 instead of 十万. Normally I'd either say "tens, hundreds" or "tens of thousands" in poetry, depending on which is more accurate.

Other than that, amazing stuff. :D

There weren't that many real witches =P. Most were innocent girls, therefore the calculation is designed for historical accuracy =P
