-------------------------
While listening to everyone but myself,
failing to take my own advice

I married the widow of dark consensus,
betrothed to darkness—divorced of light

I followed her blindly into the cave,
where the leopard of ignorance roamed

And watched as the demon devoured my words,
unholy banquet—all verses deboned
