Hidden in the tortured swamps, 
suspended in their marshy
inaccessible refuge, they flee
to hide shame and contradiction.

As a condemnation punishing a dark heart, a nasty affliction overthrew forever their bloodthirsty instinct, forcing them to have respite only with their head upside down, tucked into their black wings, forced to see the world in another way.
