Phoibos, You are irresistible, and how well You know it, how well You carry the aura of Master.
Phoibos, the One Whose eyes are full of triumph, and bloody success.
I cower at Your smile, so very slight, for it bodes the unspeakable Things which we have done.
Phoibos, Who only need shine, and the world grows, both in knowledge and in action.
I humble myself before You, I lay my head at Your feet, for they are worthy of such honor and still more that I would give.
You are the Master of my Chains, binding me to this world, Phoibos, and Your Light shines brightly upon me.
