When Darkness approaches you – Get even darker!
“Approach us not, O shades of night, for we’ve embraced a darker light. In this dark oath, our spirits blend, with demon’s witch, our fears we end!”
This sentence is the component of a dark oath to which the people of the Venarak commit. The oath is blessed by a kind of demonic witch, and a blessed Venarak thereby receives his official admission into the sinister community. A Venarak takes no step back in the face of his already nearly eradicated fears!
Since I got some questions in regards of some of the poems meaning, (and I guess not many read the captions on Instagram 😉 ) let me give you here a bit of context linked to the fantasy story… If you have any additional questions, let me know:
“Approach us not, O shades of night”:
This line portrays the Venarak as beings too dark even for the shadows of the night. It serves as a challenge to all dark forces to not approach them, as they are darker still.
“For we’ve embraced a darker light”:
A paradox suggesting that the Venarak have embraced a different form of “light” or understanding, one that lies in darkness. It could also imply an alternative morality or ethics that might be considered “dark” to outsiders 😉
“In this dark oath, our spirits blend”:
This indicates the “unity” and bonding among the Venarak themselves. Through taking this dark oath, their spirits merge into a (lets call it) community.
“With demon’s witch, our fears we end”:
This line suggests that the blessing of the demonic witch provides them a form of liberation or strength that ends or minimizes their fears. It could also imply that their fearlessness is the result of a pact with darker powers.
