Desertion By Death

Is Death Customary With CrIsis?

deathA member of CrIsis is dead. I barely got to know Drauka, for he was Danzi, and kept to himself. I am concerned that the other members of CrIsis either also knew him not, or this is a regular occurrence. The books spoke of members leaving- was that to cover how many CrIsis had lost? All I know is I am severely affected by his death, and as with all things, I have chosen to pour my feelings onto prose.

I heard a Fly buzz- when I died-
The Stillness in the Room
Was like the Stillness in the Air-
Between the Heaves of Storm-

The Eyes around-had wrung them dry-
And Breaths were gathering firm
For that last Onset-When the King
Be witnessed-in the Room-

I willed my Keepsakes-Signed away
What portion of me be
Assignable-and then it was
There interposed a Fly-

With Blue-uncertain stumbling Buzz-
Between the light-and me-
And then the Windows failed-and then
I could not see to see-

Rest in peace, Drauka. May Horus guide you to your resting place, alongside Osiris.
