The River Styx

January 23, 2010
Forming a crossroad
Between the living
And the dead

Down this river
To the world of evil
Darkness appears
Ravens flying near

The reaper comes fourth
And take souls from the north
Putting them in pain
Making them go insane

Feasting upon there souls
Making there hearts, turn to coal
This is where the dead roam
And call there place home

sometimes dark poems are dark just for the sake of being dark, but this one is actually good

Very dark, I liked it. You should try and get the tenses of there and their down though, other than that it was great.
