Random Poem:

Liliana of the Dead

Liliana loved to roam the countryside
through fields near her home,
hands out, brushing the tall grass with the tips of her tiny fingers.
She would often wander far until she grew tired,
then Liliana would stop and sit under a tree,
usually the biggest most lonely tree she could find
and watch the birds
and pick wildflowers
and then she would lay on her back and close her eyes
and dream,
and dream.
And later, during the return to the homestead
she would bludgeon and dismember local farm animals,
drink their blood and keep the bones and skulls
for later use in bizarre Daemonic rituals.
