Descended thus, did he.

The angel with one wing.

 

 

Who are you?

 

 

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

 

 

Why?

 

 

“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.”

 

 

I spoke blank thoughts

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.”
