Clementine’s passing

Her broken body split down

The path of her spine


Tang and sharp bleeding

From the walls, stark against stone

Persisting through fog


Clementine’s essence

Escaping her mortal coil

Deadened eyes staring


Staring at nothing

Light faded hou-rs ago

Life taken too soon


Drip, drip, on the ground

Cobblestone tears, bloody crown

End of an era


Skin rough and peeling

Rotting flesh, white in the seams

Orange underneath


As the sirens come

Flashing red and blue, screaming

Screaming tragedy


Into the vast void

End of Clementine

Life’s greatest cruelty


The brute never caught

A spectre in morning mist

Mourning deathly kiss


Drip, drip, in their hands

The grief’s overwhelming grasp

Cried out, “Clementine!”
