Having seance with the ocean of stars,
burning effigies in our likeness to ascend high and far.
The sanctum of latent cognition floats upon the crystal lake,
night unfolds and the sun never wakes.
Illusions come to life as the ancient moon breaks,
blurring the lines between true and fake
Dormant possabilities vomited to the surface,
bought with the transactions of a cosmic purchase.
The vacuous child was granted false eyes,
to perceive notions that were beyond human minds.
The blood moon evokes ancient beasts from their universal slumber,
morphing the feeble planet into a nest of ambitious somber.
Eldritch knowledge distorts the willingly shattered brain,
welcoming their ethereal essence into our long-forgotten domain.
