The Devil

I climbed up to the highest tower up in the highest mountain and saw the Devil whispering sweet things to an unsuspecting traveller.

In the realm of the Gods high above the clouds; I watched her fall deep into a trance as she was lured by her heart's desire and the more she listened, the more it grew.

Desire became like a strand of pearls bearing her down and it got longer and longer; with each pearl larger than the next. If you have visited the Tower in Jahanam before, you would have seen the pearls falling off her hand as she plunged to the ground.

If you have ever heard the Devil's honeyed voice before; beware of its sweet seduction. It may pervert you; it may corrupt you but all she did was whisper your heart's desire out loud.
