In the slow march of time a moment passes her by. She must adore the second that is born only to live, then quickly die. Wishing she could take this instant and extend its lonely task. To see inside a passage of time; no future, and no past. She’s lying next to nothing; face, parched and dry. No question in lamenting eyes. Why does she always feel better alone; to gaze on and on and on and on. Refusing the bid of Mephistopheles, goodnight, kind sir. So long. She's trapped within the walls. Smoke, out the window. She shouts inside her mind, 'This time I will not follow'. The visor will fall to cover her eyes. The burning embers will die. Etching a scar into that useless clock. Thrashing this moment in time. She recalls the parting lips. Surrendering to familiar taste. One last fondness, one last kiss, One last trace. She had to push away. She had to seal the door. All of her will, coming to this. She must become... no more. I see her face as we escape the end consuming our land. Drifting, farther away. Our future in her hands. Soon the flames will take her. As fate, eclipses our home. She told me, she'll be fine. Happy to die... alone. Goodbye, Vespa. Goodbye.

The final word she said to me... was, 'fly'.
