Descended thus, did he.

The angel with one wing.



Who are you?



“I am summoned to bring forth a world of suffering.”






“Of your past, was I, and thus the remedy for hurt.

Of your present, am I, and thus embodying all woe.

Of your future, will I be, and thus end mankind’s tomorrow.



Of your grief was I born.

Until you know yourself

All form of lust you hold shall tremble at my fingers.”

and slurs of the tongue.



“Are you a swirl

of darkness incarnate

or a female’s bosom

eaten by a badger?”



I am all but myself.



“Then I shall be you.”
