Darkness Reigns.

Darkness rains. Darkness reigns. Searching for the obligatory apologies that never come. She looks upon the silted landscape, hoping, pleading to whatever ear may catch her somber notes, that her savior will come to her with promises of salvation. Lost.

She wonders. She wanders. She feels most impotent; the death throes are more frequent now. Guilt ridden and blood drenched, her eyes have witnessed the fiery destruction of humanity.
Oh, the humanity of it all. The ashes have supplanted the air that she once breathed; she gasps for it, like the proverbial fish out of water.

She seizes. She ceases. She draws her last breath. He comes forth from the abyss—and with open arms—he shrouds her in his gelid embrace. He surveys the detritus; he turns in disgust. Her tears have yet to reach the ground. Suspended all.
