"The Tempter"

I am poison.
I am a plague.
I am the catalyst of destruction and anger.
I am the demolisher of happiness.

I prey on weakness.
I prey on doubt.
I prey on the dusty entrails of loneliness.
I prey on wholeness and produce nothingness.

I live for sorrow.
I live for suffering.
I live to spoil the harvests of love with my impurity.
I live to enseminate minds and hearts with pangs of guilt.

I am evil.
I am selfish.
I am infidelity incarnate.
I am a Tempter.
