Wake up! Dear one.
I, Smaerd have more to tell you.
Let me tell you what happened
After our walk on Aspirations lane the other night.
Starting from when Greed walked away with Earther.
Greed plied Earther with wine.
They wined and dined and danced the night away.
Earther forgot her worries.
She felt tender feelings for handsome Greed.
For Greed had a face all-comely,
His were a sight for sore eyes.
His body was what mortals called Adonis-like.
If only she knew what lay underneath.
Her feelings gave her heart and head a sensation akin to floating.
He seemed to have the same feelings.
And like a balloon they floated.
She gave in to the fire in her.
Letting them consume her.
So they burnt out her eyes.
She became blind to his wrongdoings.
Earther who thought herself cautious and wise gave in foolishly to Greed.
His looks, his words and her heartbreak,
Were his weapon.
She did not think to look beyond his surface.
And so, Greed weighed in and plundered,
Violating every inch of Earther.
While, Humane looked on helplessly.
