  • and again he came to cherish
    the comfort of mysteries
    inspiring and far away
    timeless in the moment
    they painted immortality

    forever drawn towards the centre
    of this ensorcelling flame
    yet, still in fear of the sacrifice
    it would take to know its name

    "Do not despair", said the mystery
    "You will always have a friend in me
    until the day you break my code
    then I will be gone and you are free...
    ...to manifest another"

    towards the heavens he did aspire
    now he shall burn who sought the fire
    some will mourn the ashes cold
    while others behold the inferno unfold

    forever drawn towards the centre
    of this ensorcelling flame
    yet, still in fear of the sacrifice
    it would take to know its name

    now he shall burn who sought the fire
    to manifest another
