“If I placed a golden coin for every time this heart gets shattered… There will be enough gold to feed the world,” I told my muse. He looked at me and smiled a secret smile.

“When I created your kind and you disowned me, there was a moment when I too, thought the same.” he said… “But I came to realise that your faithlessness was because you are children of a lesser god… And then I abandoned you to your fate and couldn’t care less. You should try that remedy sometimes. Worked wonders for me!!”

I stared at him in disbelief…
Was that supposed to make me feel better???

The beast was here all along…
