Track 4 of "Repelling A Solar Giant."
This chapter explains the events of earth-ground Titian and curse-fed Amethyst. As Titian tries to create new souls, Amethyst, speechless, destroys anything he creates indiscriminately. After a long dance with life and death, Titian finds himself down in the crevice where his lover was murdered, only to find her remains still there, leaving him to believe that it is not the real Amethyst that he is watching kill his creations. He shakes off his drunken visage, and slaughters the doppelganger...
...And upon the horizons, a beautiful body rises.
Eternities pass... Titian returns...
Embers and Zephyr follow him.
The Ritual has been completed
The pact with death has now been silenced
As Titian returns...
To the Earth-grounds
“As I descend from the realm of souls
The murderous Amethyst follows me
Her embers left death in her wake,
As sunrise became an adaptation once more...”
Titian returns to his old merging grounds
Where he and Amethyst had created new souls
From dead carcasses, to lifeless pale wights
No death was spared, they only brought life.
But now as he wanders, through these fields,
Attempting to create...
A death-hungry goddess cursed and scarred,
Stalks him in the night, killing all that he makes...
The sunrise has come...
And Titian turns his obsidian eyes away in disgust.
“A Journey deep into the grounds
Wherein the beautiful body of Amethyst
Turned to obsidian
As I return here, I sight a silhouette ...”
[Screams of Torture's past]
“If that embodiment is not Amethyst...
Then where are you?!
Where are you, Aura Amethyst?!
This corpse I hold in my arms
Laced with obsidian patterns
It reflects those upon my eyelids...”
Titian emerges from the harrowing pit
He sights the doppelganger Amethyst
His eyes fill with rage, as he curses the skies
His eyes of dried onyx reflect the sun
He confronts, this murderous imposter
As a betrayed, tortured soul.
He gazes past her alluring visage
Knowing fully well that it is deceptive...
“You are not the one I seek,
Your murderous kind is not for this world...
One more slaughter...
One more righteous murder-deed!”
Petrified between twin eyes...
The Amethyst wight lied paralyzed
As Titian lunged his might
Into her deceptive soul...
“The doppelganger is gone...
Where is my true Amethyst?”
Upon the horizons...
A silhouette rises...
Her beautiful body
reflects upon light...
A familiar sight to Titian.
He raises his head -- The true Amethyst!
"We embrace one another’s souls...
We shall never be apart again...
We release pure ecstacy among each other
We worship our auras like flesh-eidolons
We shall never be apart again
We give birth to another
An Aura of Rubicon...”
