Favorite Quote:
"And the moon never beams without giving me dreams of the beautiful Annabel Lee"
-Edgar Allen Poe


There's an inferno of flame
That blazes beneath
A city of coals
A city of teeth

Its heat wraps around
The gargantuan towers
As the heavens burn
With ember showers

The people who live
In the city below
Endure the blaze
No ice, no snow

There is no peace
No beauty, just war
No blissful ignorance
Fools no more

But truth cuts down
A flawed iron wire
There is no refuge
For the people of fire

Though the rage may howl
And the fury may wail
There is no solace
Where there is no hail

There's an inferno of flame
That blazes beneath
A city of coals
A city of teeth
