A gift riddled with unbearable curses,
slimy stone tablets transcribed the forbidden verses.
Eyes to perceive visions beyond human capacity,
gods of gray matter arouse fear and tenacity.
Pulsating migraines induced by unbridled perspective,
feeding from benighted fear is the prime objective.
The sight was too much for human eyes to consume,
slithering abominations that writhe in the gloom.
Hatred and misery nourish malicious intent,
to heights of inconceivable pleasures they ascent.
From the shallow crevices of delirious perception,
since the dawn of man we have been clouded in deception.
To open the eye of the mind is to be exposed to hideous revelations,
scorned and blasphemed by odious condemnations.
