From the author: This is a piece of raffle fanfiction poetry I wrote for Brodsky the Redplague. I'm posting it here cause I thought it turned out decently, and I thought peeps might like to read it.


What goes there?

More idea than man?

A spectre in the night

Trailing shadows by day

With a footstep so light

-

The Red Plague they called him

So they said, once a time

Beard stained so red

With his fingers so fine

-

Hush now,

Or he will take you

So quiet in the night

His robe thick with blight

So shutter your windows

And hold yourself tight

-

Or so the tales said

-

The Red Plague will find you

His face a blank mask

Porcelain, white 

Which hide the task

-

Of the red ruby eyes

Precious with shine

To capture your heart

Precious and mine

-
Yes, it is I, the Red Plague

Who sing you this song

Walk with me, here

Take my hand, come along 

-

Soon you will know 

The path of my Red Plague

The way of my mask

-

I speak of no burden

Only a task 

We must take

For the strength of each other

-

For the strength of ourselves

So hold my hand now

Don’t linger

Don’t break

-

Follow me, follow

To the Keep we must go

And with the touch of death’s finger

-

We’ll walk to his door

Then beyond to the waking

So to open your eyes

-

The dream’s just abating

Of life, left behind

So my dear welcome, welcome

There is so much to know
