Singing such a haunting melody
In a voice steeped in endless intrigue
Playing coy and drawing you in
Calling her Ravens to cut off your retreat
Closing in, her talons raised
Provocative smile to sup on your soul
Only a song
Just enough to tame her darkness
More than enough to bring her back
Who is this man
Sharing the Owl's knowing eyes
A stoic sentinel with feathered hair
His voice a honeyed razor
Cutting the darkness
Ensnaring her emotion
A bond is formed
Now a steadfast ally
His blade is hers
If only she will control her darkness
Accepting his light in repose
A proud adviser to his Lady of Ravens
A valued comrade to her Owl in the Dusk
