Dark Satellite

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Music Prompt #34 “Love Me Like You Do” by Ellie Goulding. It’s not my taste in music, but I was happy to take some of the lyrics and twist them into something more death metal!


Night’s blood

Is a painful cure

For love

Dark satellite of a world that’s dead

Offers only

A putrefied corpse

Ashes of a burnt-out heart

Salome’s platter with a severed head

  1. Dark side indeed, deliciously macabre. Regarding my Cinemagenic series, BLACKTHORNE, what you read yesterday is only a review, synopsis, of the 54 two-page episodes written over the last several year. If interested just find BLACKTHORNE entries in my blog archives.
