Heavy Metal #1
Something came over me,
deathless and free,
seducing me with promises (time, space, eternity),
but nothing good, nothing free.
All for a price: sanity.
Do I join the fool’s march, do I walk over the edge
to take the pledge of the deathless?
The more I wonder, the less sense
Ignore the hollow ones,
before they drown the world in a scourge
known as damnation.
