A murder in the Villa

Lady of the house wakes from her repose
Her eyes seem to still be in lassitude
And her countenance in a state of morose
She pulls her night robes and asks
her maid to belt the corset and gown
Trembling and quivering walks she, briskly
To her man who was to head for town
As she closes him, she collapses into tears
Narrates the phantasm she bore that night
About gruesome creatures that flew over her
And macabre masquerade she danced in fright
She begs him not to desert her the time
He takes the mistress into his shoulders
And kisses her on forehead and construes her
Of the loss imminent, less the business
Comes she into her wits and let's him to way

Distressed and dreaded still, she moves to attic
And lies for a nap. A heavy voice nears to her
In a blink she finds herself in a castle, frantic
A man in black cloak walks her to the ball
While she asks if it was all a dream
"Yes my lady", answers he, "You're with death.
The ruler of this place and our supreme.
He's accepted you as a part of our spirit"
Palpitantly she runs towards a window
And jumps off, to only wake up in a shrill
None would come to her except for her shadow
She finds herself again, in midst of night
Lightly she walks and treads, as does a cat
And crawls she like a reptile. None yet in sight
Only until a strange sound filled the space

She rushes and gets into her possession a knife
Blunt enough to bruise and sharp enough to pierce
This side. Nah! That side. Echo is all at rife
Waves of tremor rippled down to her heart
At the door! Tells her mind of something bleak
She stands by it's side and awaits the moment
And then opens the door with creak and a squeak
Steady is she, like a pard that does for it's pray
At the flash of it's entrance, she jumps on
And stabs into it's neck and thumps it down
Follows a cry of pain and a cry of groan
She crouches to see and turns it around
A moment of stillness. Her heart freezes
Her blood seizes to flow. Her mind stagnates
Her vitality seems to end in all creases
As she realizes she murdered her own man.
