I found living corpses in there
In there I found awoken bodies
Holding in rows all down the tower
Shambling in anti-order
I want to be here no longer
They live inside eachother
And I do not wish to pay host
I really love people. I have an affinity for my species.
I love the things we make, the things we say.
But I get so scared, scared of the things we do.
And those acts with which I am unfamiliar.
So scared that I want to hide away, that I am tempted to reject it all-
Tempted to call love a raindance and communication some dark magick.
But I have ventured deep into the demense of those who truly feel as such-
And it is a place all the more frightening.
A place of twisted, brambly courtships and negligence,
A place where the loving and feeling are scorned, cast away
And the cold selfish ones are embraced, made gods of.
Though still I find some kindred spirits among them, those likewise afeared,
I love too much, and I am not cold
I've been burned, yes. But I do not wish to turn against my kind so broadly
I do not yearn for the stringing-up and belly-splitting
Of those who are merely made echoes of my assailants.
Pray, forgive me, but lo-
I am not thee, O scorning ones, I am not thee.
