Rage, Beyond the Dark Mirror: III

Why do you create this thing of me, This horrid hate I rage of is your doing, I do not wish to be! Not to create with this vernal tongue, Nor annihilate, nor expunge, nor eviscerate, No! I wish to be destroyed, to sublimate back Into the maw of this origin: To be no longer, not […]

Rage, Beyond the Dark Mirror: II
