I’ve been diving through atmospheric layers of infinite cosmic stardust, peeling the flesh from my forehead,  and cracking the skull. There’s always a second question to replace an honest answer, deception lies in the heart of our species.

It envelopes me in warmth and thaws my frozen soul, all I see is red piercing through much like the heat of the fire. There I see just a trace, of a glimpse, of a vibrant blue eye.
