into the abyss to plunge the mind torn asunder by thorns the mind full of darkling obscurity the mind full of infirmity Oh that place of hell that place words cant tell to writhe in pains of the mind that place nothing can quell
but yet that hell that darkling pall be but can be but a threshold some can tell a doorway to the light a doorway to the world bright to the super-splendent up up fromst that hell out into the light into the super-sublimity of the world above joyousness raptures sublime into the light to breathe ambergris and musk drunk with dizziness be thee on the intoxicating frothing sparks of light
