1. Consumed


They call me many things, but never ‘wise’.

Glorious vanity, for beauty I have – if nothing else.

Cold cruelty, for I have killed – if nothing else.

Am I wise?

It would have been wise if I had not set the white beaches and marred earth ablaze with sword and flame, merciless and intent. It would have been wise if I had listened to the cries and screams of those I murdered, those whose blood I wear with such potent pride.

I am forced to admit that I am not.

My fire consumes what might have been my wisdom.

I laugh.
