Enigma Skies


Luminous and vivid as petals of mystery unwind.

The gaze of a dreamer or the gaze of a destroyer?

Creation comes with a price just the same as magic.

Only it is up to me and you to decide which path will be ours.

Through the woods of past travelers.

Through the woods of past dreamers.

You will discover flowers of no kind you have seen before.

You will discover a form of poison that could kill you.

Listen before you go.

A flower may be gorgeous, but it could also be poisonous.

Toxic and malicious or fine and forgetful.

I could find you in the mysteries of a forest or I could find you right now.

Deep down in an ocean or possibly enigma skies.
