Chalice of Blood

With this cup
Please join me
In my decay
In my fall
From the throne
Biting my lip
Trying not cry
You have never known
The reasons for my collapse
Before me a cup of blood I sip
For I am dead but have never died
My heart is a slave owned
By the vagaries of circumstance
My hunger never ceases
Stare in my eyes
And feel me in your bones
So many millennia elapse
Time is ceaseless
While I refuse to die
