Stranger (Madrigal- Enemy, part 2)




Blood is spilled from the rooftops, 

from the mountains we came from, 

from the seraphim's sky.

Blood coats my hooves, 

the fallen, 

my friends-


I try not to think about the blood.


But- there! - a flash of movement

life among the death

I carve a path through carnage

of creatures I used to know


Amber eyes, 

a tiger angel

Nothing I've ever seen.


The stranger's tiger eyes plead with me

but what he doesn't know is

we're not like them


I don't exist simply to kill.

I am here to save.

I force magic life back into his lungs

and watch his consciousness slip away.
