The Maiden’s Curse

Her arms wrapped around her body
Her dress a flowing melody
Her face a beauty within the dark
Completely flawless and without a mark
The wind it swirled caressing her hair
Whispering it’s love for one so fair

Tonight the world would show it cared

As the wind gained in strength and grew
The others saw it as their cue
Why they had come would soon be told
Why they were promised they’d never grow old
Only the prettiest had been chosen
To have their youth forever frozen

Tonight the world would show it cared
Tonight the way would be prepared

The standing stones began to hum
The moon glowed just like the sun
They did not know what pulled them so
Or even how the words would flow
But still they began to dance and sing
Moving faster and faster within their ring

Tonight the world would show it cared
Tonight the way would be prepared
Tonight the maidens would open the door

Still the wind grew and blew
Around the stones the girls flew
In a whirl they were lost to the night
So fast it seemed they’d take flight
Their heads thrown back in pure delight
The power created leading to new heights

Tonight the world would show it cared
Tonight the way would be prepared
Tonight her maidens would open the door
Tonight the power would be hers once more

The power slashed through the air like a knife
A door exploded into being and came to life
The maidens stopped their dance to stare
At what now was there and not simply air
A sense of fear at what had arrived
Their dance bringing this thing to life

Tonight the world would show it cared
Tonight the way would be prepared
Tonight the maidens would open the door
Tonight the power would be hers once more
Tonight eternal life would be in her hands

Across the circle came a low growling
A dark dismal beast that began howling
The maidens felt their blood run cold
As the horror of it all began to unfold
To sustain his life he had a need
Upon them for eternity he would feed

Tonight the world would show it cared
Tonight the way would be prepared
Tonight the maidens would open the door
Tonight the power would be hers once more
Tonight eternal life would be in her hands
Tonight she would rule across the land
