As she brings me to my knees
glistening sparks of silver capture my eye
she sharpens her blade
the sacrifice has begun
her desire must be met
and I have nothing left but my life
my Queen of darkness
demands the ultimate gift
with the first cut of her knife
my body burns
my blood seeping from my flesh
to the red pool forming at her feet
the second slash of the blade
sees her smile as I scream
and she revels in my pain
dancing to the rhythm
drawing me closer
enchanting my mind with her angel eyes
she cuts me deeper
and all I feel is love
and the knowledge
death will not come quickly this night
