Across the River Styx

Let me put pennies on your eyes to pay the toll to Charon.  Let me show you where you were right and where you were wrong.  Let the requiem play out its one note song.  Let me take you across the river Styx.

You thought that because I was tamed that I was no longer dangerous.  You thought that I held hope for your perceived broken mass.  You thought that those like me were the rule and not the exception.  Let us take you across the river Styx.

You thought that we were intelligent and mindful.  Maybe so, maybe not.  You thought that we would not feed, and that we were sated from years of feasting.  You thought that even the wild demons of the world could become tame.  Let us take you across the river Styx.

You quoted our stigma and our disgrace.  You proclaimed yourself a savior, the one we never wanted.  You came uninvited into our lives and tried to make us tame.  Let us take you across the river Styx.

You got too close and blamed yourself when the beast turned mad.  With rabid fang and fierce claw, you were torn asunder and yet you proclaimed your love for us with your dying breath.  Let us take you across the river Styx.

Let me put pennies on your eyes to pay the toll to Charon.  Let me bury you after I remove my blade.  Let your requiem play out its one note song.  Let me take you across the river Styx.

To those that wish to make the same mistakes, to believe in false gods and in false truth, our ferry will come around again.  We will be there, waiting for our toll and for your soul.  We are ready to take you across the river Styx.
