Beneath the onyx sheath is an ulfberht sword
that severs beauty and charm like a silk cloth.
It lies there waiting for someone to wield it
and release its obsidian magic powers
They say Lilith’s rage was the fire that forged it
And Orphene’s darkness made it glow with allure.
The sword opened a leygate in the Pantheon
and was considered Metamor’s ultimate treasure.
To find the sword, you’d have to see
the light of darkness, step into hell
and embrace death without using
Artela’s fire or Aegle’s dazzling light.
An ulfberht sword requires a third eye
to see beauty from an inverted sense.
Human eyes only see what is skin deep.
Obsidian magic requires eyes that see
through mystery’s shroud and find
beauty whilst avoiding boredom’s stone.
Obsidian beauty is usually dressed to kill
hearts with challenges that otherwise
strip regular beauty naked in front
of the mind before the eyes.
Such beauty is a passion born in the dark
with a daunting thirst you can’t quench.
This thirst is the striking difference
that charms the mind before the eye.
