In the midst of a sweetened bitterness lies a bitter sweetness.
Wake and do something worthwhile, says the greatest of the worst.
Do something worthwhile and wake, says the worst of the greatest.
In the midst of a sweetened bitterness lies the sweetest of the bitter.
In the midst of a sweetened bitterness lies the most bitter of the sweet.
In the midst of this ashened treat comes a turn.
Whether it leaves the bitter or the sweet, it welcomes the sweet or the bitter.

The glass of a crimson surface dims on the sound of an oncoming looming darkness.
These waves of darkness pierce through to and fro, stealing away the essence from those unfortunate to cross its path.
The essence stolen no longer stands to silence, reverberating in the harmony of a sound lost in time.
The third bell has chimed, summoning the wind to shatter the glass within.
