Crimson flows evil’s desires, when men’s hearts burn with hates fires… Victims weeping with deceits gain, carving death from living flesh sorrow rains… Sweeping blades rip and tear as anger unleashed on a choir rings out before a seasonal manger…Bone on steel, lead on flesh cries of anguish growing from evils seeds now sowing.. Growing […]

This point

Underpowered forms, fussing between average norms… Testing each step, grinding joints no longer do I skip, how did I get to this point.. Hair a fright, eyes wide, cannot see well in day or night..

There, in that first hour, knowing […]

To stay
