The First Circle of Hell

And I saw the words,

Once written in stone, now written on my heart…


Abandon all hope ye who enter here


Take up arms, those who are able,

For we defend ourselves against

A cruel mistress…


An enemy who lacks both honesty and mercy.

An enemy who drives us

To the brink of certainty,

To the edge of assuredness,

Only to tear our flesh

And consume us like

An unholy communion with an unholy ghost,

Leaving only who we are

Instead of who we could be.


Hope is our enemy.

Hope is our conqueror.

Hope will be our defeat.
