Look, I’m not proud of it, but I’m about to quote some poetry. But it’s OK because this is a super cool stanza from The Divine Comedy so whatever dude!!!!

When he had spoken, all the twilight country
shook so violently, the terror of it
bathes me with sweat even in memory:

the tear-soaked ground gave out a sigh of wind
that spewed itself in flame on a red sky
and all my shattered senses left me. Blind,

like one whom sleep comes over in a swoon,
I stumbled into darkness and went down.
