White dogs and feathers, they lay on our bed,
In tuned to the silence and the tears that I've shed.
Starlight and shadows are all that is left,
I'm numb to the pain now, my heart longs for rest.
Moonlight bright and forest deep,
The trees fell silent for a secret they did keep.
In her eyes a smouldering fire,
The angel of dark and carnal desire.
Her whispers caressed the ancient words,
From the trees she charmed the black feathered bird.
The spell was cast upon the darkening sky,
The moon shone in the Raven's eye.
And then one night he remained wide awake,
To end the torment was the vow he did take,
Taking his bow, he loosed a poison dart,
The arrow pierced the Raven's heart.
And through the forest echoed a deafening scream,
As the Raven fell to earth, so did the dark dream.
The curse broken, the dark angel consigned to hell,
At last he lay peaceful, no longer under her spell.
