A nightmare born from a child's suffering,
a brewing storm of corruption he was offering.
Submerged in infantile tears, the nightmare began,
deluded and blasphemed by demented clergymen.
Ceaseless curiosity gave birth to the formless night terror,
the wet nurse fed and nurtured the dream bearer.
Mother of abominations,
nurturer of deformed creations.
Cries of the cursed child plagued by worshippers,
cosmic transactions of amorphous soul bargainers.
Fear and loathing fed the child of rippling ordeals,
reflections of forbidden memories forever concealed.
As long as the child remains dormant,
nothing will bring an end to this ceaseless torment.
