Under a Blood Red Moon

Alone on the beach under a blood red moon
The waves roll in as the tide begins to rise
Crashing my feet as I lay upon the sand
Lost to the world surrounding endless dreams

The curtain rises as the performers walk on stage
A lone ballerina dances to the orchestra’s tunes
Soon the others join in with graceful wonder
Delighting the audience with their masterful play

Echoing above,the seagulls sing their lullabies
With the crashing of the waves joining in hypnotic rhythm
The waters rise, covering my legs now soaked
Unable to awake from this slumbering tomb

The ballet soldiers charge the castle walls
One by one they fall unto their deaths
With ladders cast as they climb to fight
As the cannon balls break through the castle’s defenses

Relentlessly the water rises to engulf the upper body
Which slowly sinks down as if being buried by the sand
Along the shore wonders a man with a flashlight in his hand
As if searching for something or someone lost in the evening

Into the king’s chamber guarded by the Royal Elite
The king now must fight for his own survival
The heroes sword has thrusted into the tyrant’s heart
The curtain now slowly drops as the king is now dead

Under a Blood Red Moon

Artist's Description

Sorry guys!! You’ll have to make up your own minds. Did the man on the beach get rescued, or perhaps was able to awaken?Or was it found in tragedy and his end was upon the play? It is left up to you to determine the end. Have fun!!
