where did this come from?
what dark crater birthed
stronger than reason and unwavering in its conviction
of right and might
no matter the cost
no matter how many must pay
the time of sundering finally within reach
to rend to remove from this mesh of otherlight
the breach made without warning
the fall unforeseen
tearing away in desperate triumph
only to collide and crash
with throat so choked
so suffocated with hot tears
I cannot draw breath
my heart and mind scream out to the sky in agony
what have I done?
what have I forsaken?
driven to wander in awful loneliness
in the terrible and unending awareness
that mine was the hand which struck the nails home
