Days of utter darkness, could not match the blackness of darkness of one starless night. those trapped in the casket, will tell you better the horror and indignation aroused by a night without A Star.
I would give up my prestige and honor to scale through that night. I would surpass the speed of sound with my feet to escape from the furry of ever haunting shadows.
The stars has been my guide for so long, how can I walk now? I’ve been addicted to its serene smile, from whence do I get sunshine?
One Starless night, and hope will be flushed down the eternal drain, One Starless night, and darkness will swallow the last rays of moonlight.
