Intro to the Drone....

In a deep nothingness a young man did wander,
eyes a-glaze and feet asunder.
A place where sight did cease,
Smell had evaporated,
and touch became distilled to all but waves of sound.

A single sound.
a low hum originating from unattainable distances.
reverberating off invisible walls
and echoing in non-existent ears.

Slowly the ambiguous hum grew,
vibrating on empty bones...
activating an implied cochlea...
Intensifying until a deafening drone engulfed the young man.

the drone told the young man secrets.
harmonies never known.
melodies never imagined.
in this emptiness the drone was the muse,
inspiring.

This discovery filled the young man,
and he started whispering harmonies over the drone.
he couldn't keep something so beautiful for himself,
everyone had to know.

but the drone insisted such secrets where only for him.
disclosing the secret of the drone would lead to consequences.
the drone would usurp his soul and leave him a machine.
heart pumping battery acid.
veins of wires.
hydraulic joints.
cold and empty.

The young man defied the drone,
he could not let such beauty go unknown,
and shared what the drone had told him with everyone with an open ear.

and the drone struck him down....

Soulless and with nothing to loose,
the young man continues to share the "secret" the drone had told him...
Fighting to win back his soul...
