Legend of the gargoyle

There was once an ancient legend in our land, that deemed that no heart should be broken by man, for if he did a spell be cast, that this wretched human to stone be cast, to exist as a gargoyle upon the walls of Snell, our beloved fortress we love so well.

It is said in the dead of night a fair young maiden received this plight, a young stranger came to our land and made a promise to this maiden’s hand, a ring he bestowed upon her finger but the little louse he did not linger.

But before the gates had time to open the spell was cast and his image broken, with a contorted grin and piercing eyes, claw like nails he’ll be despised.  A memory of a loveless night, revenge is sweet and it served him right.

A broken heart grows bitter

My heart feels hollow now, for what you’ve done to me

A broken heart grows bitter, with a loveless tragedy

My heart, I feel it cramping, am I going to die?

My life I feel I’ve wasted, living in your lie

Why could you not be honest?

You’re killing me

Now I sit in wait, for my mind to set me free
