A stygian darkness plummets upon the land,
an obsidian whirlpool so bleak and grand.
Shadows swallow the eternal sun,
black frost devours the nocturnal trees.
Omens whisper in the dank winds undone,
the shallow darkness ignores their sorry pleas.
Wave upon wave of phantasmal shadows,
humanity is growing to a close.
The forests are smothered,
the earth is drowned.
Secrets of the abyss uncovered,
kings and queens uncrowned.
The light is eternally swallowed,
leaving the world dark and hallowed.
