Crepuscular (single)

by Ashen Horde



Inspired by the legendary John Fricke.

Available from 10/23-10/31.


So long abandoned
Forsaken, left to decay
The inhabitant
Mirroring the walls that surround her

Seemingly alone
Though she is unaware
Of the many guests
She will soon host

The sounds invade her mind
Like voices, formed from dust
Rapidly growing in strength
Deafened by the beating of wings

In an instant
The storm is upon her
The thin walls
Giving way to their strength

The swarms descend, her features blurred
Under a layer of dusted wings
The flesh, already dry and fragile
Gives way to minuscule predators

Searching for a suitable host
The tattered rags that hang cause little temptation
The larvae need living flesh
Even if it’s hanging on the edge of death
