Barghest of the Moor

the dog silhouette

surrounded by the green light

after you, he walks

chosen prey of the hunter

among the moors

through the music of the sorrowful symphony

his howl moans your name

the ghastly sound of the undoing

the barghest

bound to you, pain-filled inamorata

the air thick with pain

the fog choking your throat

the hound

his gleam like hellbound light

in the past, hidden secrets

the ancestors’ redemption

through your sacrifice

through your blood
