You always tried to take from me something I never had. Whether through the twin instruments of pleasure and pain, or your twisted rapture in seeing my “fly trapped in a spider’s web” distress, you always tried, and always failed.

And where are you today? We both know the Tempest owns you, and that your soul has been forged into another coin. Currency for a faceless Underworld, populated by contemporary freaks much like yourself.

And now? This moment? Now I hold you tight inside my jagged fist. You have finally found what you always wanted. Damnation has brought you joy.

    This is my favourite so far as it's invoked many feelings/memories. =)

    Thank you, OPR. I hope those feelings/memories you speak of aren't too painful.

    Not at all. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger; the trick is to keep everything in balance and hopefully not skip like a broken record.

    I can't help but picture a movie where the main character comes for revenge because the villain has "impugned on his honor." I don't know if that is what you were going for, but nonetheless this is a great drabble.
