I can see you, you know.
I know what you’re up to and what you’re thinking.
I was there once. So were you.
Do you remember?
I was a child, older than my years as childhood was denied me.
Because of you.
This is the last place you took me.
I fought, you pushed, and I fell, but I swore I’d come back and stop you.
They could see me, you know.
Some were fortunate and escaped, others met the same fate as I.
We each occupy a step to your damnation.
We can see you.
And soon, you will see us.
