Lead this wanderer across the ridges, at the edge of life, at the edge of time. Atop these brooding ancient towers, as the oceans boil the red to black. These halls are old as the earth itself, and with slow feet I do continue to lurch, the dim light to guide my way, past the eyes of the gracious dead. Sullen eyes turned skywards, longing and hopeful. Another step forward, another step less. In time all will perish, this flame extinguished; fulfil my promises and set me free.

Wind to remove my flesh. My corpse cast to the sea. Earth to devour my bones. Purging fire to erase me. A truth observed in stillness. A puzzle flowing through blood. Never the one most precious. Never the one to be mourned.

This husk is passing... from this tower I’ll fall... to greet with a thin smile, a welcome end to this all. A moment of joy, long as the day. Caught in the sliver, betwixt these two worlds.

Converge, emerging from between dark recesses. Tendrils entwine, rending my limbs, beasts of eldritch splendour. Sending cold shivers, nesting inside my ribcage. The only light seen behind my closed eyes... why are we here? What hope do we have? Through the gaping maw, here I come...

Full circle I have come now, holding a mirror to myself, to reflect all I said in vain to justify my current silence. I’m one of them, one of the cancer, feasting along with them, sifting through the filth. No longer running from this scene of perversion; bitterness my shield, self-irony my hammer...
