In a faraway land lies a broken tower inside this broken tower lies a faded woman. She yearns for love. Her glorious light used to light the tower and fight dark fears. But one day she let fear in and with it came misery, and all the horrors of human kind.
The Abyss Tower seemed to loom and conquer all when these horrors came in.
Once long ago I knew this very woman. She seemed to be aglow with vitality and beatitude. Her cheeks were of the loveliest hue and full of color. Her eyes were full of mirth, and vitality.
But now she seems to have lost her hue. Her eyes now seem to resemble that of the dead. Her once rosy cheeks have lost their hue and seem ghostly. Never look into her eyes or you will be trapped in her overwhelming grief. The light seems to be forever gone & what was once glorious has faded to nothingness.
