Charge of the Dark God

Listen to the words of the Dark God, who of old was called Anubis, Donn, Hades, Sestar, and by so many other names :

I am the shadow in the bright of day; I am the reminder of mortality at the height of living. I am the never ending veil of night where the Star Goddess dances. I am the death that must be so that life may continue, for behold, Life is immortal because the living must die.

I am the strength that protects, that limits; I am the power that says no, and no further and that is enough. I am the things that can not be spoken of, and I am the laughter at the edge of death.

Come with me into the warm unfolding dark; feel my caress in the hands, in the mouth, in the body of the one you love, and be transformed.

Gather in the moonless night and speak in unknown tongues; and the Dark Mother and I will listen. Sing out and cry out, and the power will be tours to wield. Blow me a kiss when the sky is dark and I will smile, but no kiss will return; for my kiss is the final one for mortal flesh.
