"A Sinister Poem," Part VII:
Burying the Sisterhood has fallen... Peace.
Ecstasy she gave; I abhor such crimes.
Drop Matilda's heart!
Upon Elvira crouch!
Sleep destroy and virtues protect!
Your bosom is impossible... Oh!
Blush to leave them happy.
Feeble Seraphims beside him should be silent.
Mysterious Lucifer I summoned.
:lol:

"A Sinister Poem," Part VIII:
Her Mother had met with her Partner, and she saw the night.
Her Daughter was hushed.
Upon his pillow, an end to a soul; he was not writing with joy.
She may be of use, which always made me feel a little queerish.
Home? At once!
She had ever entertained!
