Crow Creation.

Updated: Jul 1, 2021

Made in darkness

I bleed obsidian prose

over stark realities

begging the world to see me

for more than sharpness and wit

smooth feathers cover the marred flesh

of battle scars

caws harken me forth

for meal, for bonding, for home

but I have flown

too close to the sun

but also

only by light of the moon

I feast on last breaths

making sure no life goes in vain

but my devotion

is not to pain or sacrifice,

just choice,

I fly because I can

my wings giving voice to the wind

warning you of omens

you’ll never understand

but I have no choice but see

my life is obsidian prose

darkness bleeds from me
