Mare of the Night | A Poem

From the Nether

She stands tall

A specter of a horse

Infernal beast

Bathed in flame

From the fiery depths

On thunderous hooves

Her gallop is fierce

Black as coal

And lightning swift

She soars in wingless flight

Through the indigo sky

Her eyes are a beacon

Aglow like burning embers

Every mortal’s nightmare

A demon steed

A harbinger of fate

She brings only certain doom
