  In the city of the dead,
    In the city where they sleep away the hours.

          Despise myself, yet cannot overcome--And so I live.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

I must sleep now.

The first dark day of nothingness. The last of danger and distress.

Thy day without a cloud bath pass'd,
  And thou wert lovely to the last;
    Extinguish'd not decay'd!
      As stars that shoot along the sky
        Shine brightest as they fall from high.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Down to the dust!--and, as thou rott'st away,
  Even worms shall perish on thy poisonous clay.
