And there She Stood
In her insidious majesty
in the cinders of a blackened sun
in the glow of a frozen moon

On this world
Lay endless bounty
Vast were the steppes
And flawless angular cities

Gliding upon the ether
on a hollow shell
they all bore impressive grimaces
none noticed as the walls
of their world became dust
sifted through the obsidian
hands of the celestial father

from emaciation to pale dust
the shallow body becomes a hollow void

Her burial went without ceremony
Where there once was glory
Stood only the shattered remains
Of artificial splendor

The flawless orb was revealed
As a mere spectre
A Projection of an idea
That cannot exist without
