What do you do?



You are at the pinnacle of humanity! My life has fallen away, those who dine with the devil and dance away their sorrow.

Cold and lonely is the path I walk, alone in a world of darkness the empty gestures and faces staring back at me with their glass eyed stare and forked tongues.

The mirror of a twisted soul who's been bound by the very fabric of what he's come to love. Fleeting and taunting him to keep an eye on the watch all the time.

To reach out to touch the unattainable is to catch handfuls of mist and watch it slowly roll between your fingers.

I am alone screaming to an empty audience.

Glass eyes and empty gestures served best cold.

I walk alone, candlelight flickering.

I am,
The Void
