My only wife

This line of mine is verily obtuse
from Edens garden my tail is loose
one has come where joyous tail
for never once will they fail
she is a burden the history is past
and the next will surly last
were we together as one
our kindred waste full son
the whole embrace of lights
who will win the delights
of where we go my surprise
as our son begins to rise

a trip throughout this land
all is one our vengeful hand
this is complete of where to go
or else back to the deep dark hole
where you will never retreat
as a place for your great seat
to look down and judge
with a voice that will never budge
swollen tongue when silent
and straighten the bent
while all fall and gaze
the hells will light and blaze

is this really the end
my loyal and faithful friend
at our point of final demise
for the enemy told lies
of theft from the world
from which he dwelled
the sky is blackened frost
at such a gem of a cost
the sacrifice was not a wrong
while this is just a song
which I gave to you
to cheer you up from feeling blue
