Devils and Deities: Nemesis

A poem about the deity Nemesis (Death and Balance) from the Devils and Deities role-playing setting.

The flickering of flames, keep me company
Watching lives go by, for an eternity
Emotion gone long ago, always feeling cold
Fulfilling my duty, let no life grow too old
But once per century, a day just for me
A day filled with life, where death ceases to be
