The image shattered

The entity lay coiled,

Shivering,

Fetal like

Upon the cold smooth surface,

Colder than any worldly ice,

Blacker than pitch,

Its frozen depth bottomless,

Cold burning like fire

For any enduring it touch.

Slowly,

The creature black as the ice,

Lifted it head

Seeking to find surcease

From the burdening silence

Suffocating like a blanket

That surrounded it.

It tried to scream,

But silence devoured the agony wailed.

It stood,

Surrounded by a grey fog,

Thick,

Unyielding,

Stinging needle like,

Touching skin

Raw from the burning ice,

No healing possible,

Nor mercy shown in this realm

It slowly painfully started to walk,

Dragging itself through the darkness,

The swirling fog,

An endless journey leading nowhere,

For there was only nothingness,

Only its own company to keep,

Filled with the lifeless void

Something worse than inner pain,

Empty yet aware.

Hunger drew it,

Seeking,

Hunting without hope,

Sustenance raged for,

Anything to feed,

Fill,

The inner void,

Cold,

Cavernous.

In life it sought out others

Feasting on their pain,

Happy in the ruin it wrought,

The innocent its delight,

Goodness consumed

To feed the inner darkness,

It prowled through life

Reveling in it destruction

Of those filled with light.

Now it hunts

With no prey to find

It screams out its rage,

Hatred,

Its longing unfulfilled.

Alone,

Lost,

In a world

Of its own creation.

Nothing else it can do,

It feeds upon itself,

Hunger feeding hunger,

Nothingness seeking sustenance,

That only love can fill,

Rejected long ago

For other foods

That fed only darkness

Nor starving in its hate filled isolation.

The image the entity made in,

Rejected,

Scorned,

Hated,

When finally gone left to itself,

Only fragments left of what once was,

All of humanity gone,

Shattered by the act of self creation

Wishing for no other destiny.

Better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven,

The entities kingdom vast,

Built on the cold icy burning lake,

Endless,

Vast beyond measure,

Its rule supreme

Contested by none,

It subjects

Rage, hunger, eternal cold, upon the icy lake of fire.
