the woeful demon, above the ground
flew without a sound
reminiscing ages past
lightly, now and then, from his eyes
a tear fell like lava
and the land bruned below

he wanted to believe in goodness
he wanted to pray
to make peace and to love
but he wasn't allowed to live
thus, he decided
to destroy other's delight

here I rule and love
in the dark I'm watching you
you see me for the first time:
"I... am the lord of knowledge and freedom
I'm the enemy of the heavens, the natural vice!"

"and you shall become queen of the earth,
my very first fiancé,
without compassion, without concern
you'll begin to watch the wolrd.
where there's no genuine glee,
and where beauty is so brief,
where there are but crimes and castigations
and passions most pathetic,
where they cannot fearlessly
feel neither hate, nor love."
- M. Yu. Lermentov (1814-41), Demon
