I had her bound to the fire. For the flames to consume. With her flesh to be no more. Just ash to crown my head. To put an end to the plague. Cease the stream of the vile. To cleanse us all of her name. The demands that I said. Curse my eyes for what I saw. Not a thorn to leave my side. But a glimpse deep from my past; reached from the burn. To I, that begets the spawn. The birth from my command. Death did not heed my bid. Yet bore anew, her return. Caught in the glass of the blaze, the blight I see was me. Hope rises from our dreams. As we both will live. As we all will live. As you and I will live. While also... dead.
