When all is said and done, listlessness remains. It is the hell of dispassion, in a very real form. It offers that heavy peace, the peace of the graveyard – no beasts, no passion, no fury.
We were lied to. Be honest, be beneficent. Such treachery of the soul. It’s not the beneficence that makes this rotten world turn around. It’s our unadulterated malice and capacity for destruction.
What happens when the one you love is blown to kingdom come? What does it do to the soul of the one who had suffered such loss? Does he hoist the black flag and start slitting throats in righteous vengeance?
When will this madness end? With the utter annihilation of the other?
With each passing day, I wonder.
May the innocent rest in peace.

To find that ultimate alone-ness in this uncaring universe… we are godless – we have always been. What questions do we ask ourselves? How do we explain this soul crushing division and loneliness? Are we forever doomed to traverse this universe in this alone-ness? What we wouldn’t give to fill this void of emotion and sensation… everything is so fleeting…
Even if some of us are doomed to walk this Earth frozen and alone… could we ever find that spark of solace in the company of another? Or are we cursed to walk and dream and die in vain?

In the end,
What awaits us?
What awaits the sinner’s soul?
Will God grant us repentance for our sins?
Or shall He be as Vindictive as the Book says?
We are but playthings in His Great Game,
Pebbles on the table,
Moved by an uncaring God,
Ours is the earthen misery.
What awaits beyond the Veil of Lies?
