we have seen
    e t e r n a l
cities fall, my dear

we have seen
    e t e r n a l
walls crumble, my love

we have seen
    e t e r n a l
gods bring down the sky, my treasure

and, no
    n e v e r
did any of them realize that our blood was golden

and no, 
    n e v e r
did any of them realize our veins flowed with ichor

and no, 
    n e v e r 
did any of them realize we are the most dangerous gods of all

for no, 
    w e
are devotions with holy bones
 
for no, 
    w e
could never die

for no, 
    w e 
have phoenix eyes that glow with fire

my dear
