Unseen and silent, accursed, corrupt, it beckons me.
Beset my essence. Damnation mirrored; my own reflection tainted.
Appear; my sins defile my skin.
Withered and lost is my youth.
Abhorred; I stare into my soul.
To find it pale and drained; no sign of life remain.
Avert; I turn to face myself.
Monstrous eyes lock with mine.
Aghast; the truth burns my eyes.
Blinded I fall through the dark, towards unspoken realms of pain.
I fall from the light…
Into the unknown night…
The winds embrace me, cold and unforgiving.
And lo, forsaken, I will never see the sun again.
And whispering, hissing voices spoke unto me, words of malice and blight, truths that festered and sickened my very soul. And I feared thus demon I became.
I became… forlorn and empty, accursed, corrupt, a malicious soul.
A spirit of hatred that dwells upon and manifests damnation
Appeared; my sins defiled my skin.
Withered and lost was my youth.
Abhorred; I stared into my soul.
And found it paled and drained; no sign of life remained.
Averted; I turned to face myself.
Monstrous eyes locked with mine.
Aghast; the truth burned my eyes.
Blinded I fell through the dark, towards unspoken realms of pain.
I fell from the light…
I fell thus demon I became…
