Poetry, Video Games, Writing

This is a poem based off the song “Kurenai,” by Tsukiko Amano. It was used in the ending sequence of the updated Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly video game. Much of my inspiration came from the song’s lyrics, along with themes and events from the game.

Crimson paints the sky
Like a macabre paintbrush
A damp, bloody cloth,
It hangs over my head,
Threatening to swallow me whole
Rifts in the stained clouds
That reflect the wounds
On your porcelain skin
A promise that is left to rot
In a silent bed of deep red,
Never to be fulfilled
Tears streak down my face

Neither the song “Kurenai,” nor Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly, belongs to me. No copyright infringement is intended.
