Crimson Moon

In the midst of man’s ceaseless bustle and the towering spires of his ambition, a rift opens unbidden upon a city street. From this shadowed maw steps forth a figure, draped in the red of the martyr’s blood, its presence a silent herald of the pending tribulation.

The city, caught in the throes of its daily pageant, trembles as fear spreads like plague through its veins. Mortals, struck by a primal dread, pour forth from their glass and steel edifices, their cries ascending as incense to the obscured heavens. They run, not knowing whither, only that the spirit compels them away from the shadow of he who walked forth from the abyss.

Then night leans in, whispers low—
“Chaos is the chorus to your civilization’s song.”
Steel and glass, flesh and fear,
How they clash, how they spin!
A riot of souls in the grip of sin.

Behold, the sky swiftly darkens to cloak the deeds of earth, and the moon, a bold witness to earth’s sorrow, climbs solemnly aloft. It burns crimson, casting the rivers—those ancient watchers of the city’s sins—as blood under its stark beacon. The streets, once alive with the symphony of modernity, now lie hushed, save for the mournful whisper of the river coursing with the hue of sacrifice. The crimson moon watches, a solemn sentinel to this spectral tableau.

Thus, under the firmament’s brooding eye, doth the prophecy fulfill itself. The city, erstwhile a hub of ceaseless toil and dreams, now a stage for a drama older than time. Man’s edifice, however grand, stands transient under the eternal cycle ordained by higher decrees, witnessed by celestial bodies that mourn in silence above.
