Plot Summary Edit
Police ask Grubbs who killed his family, he told them demons did it but the police wont believe him. Grubbs is then put into a hospital for the clinically insane where he can be treated. Nobody believed Grubbs, and so he didn't think the doctors could ever help him.
Until the day his Fathers brother, Dervish Grady comes to see him in hospital. He showed Grubbs 3 pictures of the Demons that attacked him. He asked if he knew them or had seen them, he had. During the short visit, Dervish told Grubbs he would have to lie and pretend the treatment was helping him so he could escape and learn more about his family's murders and blood-soaked history.
The Poem - Lord Loss Edit
Lord Loss sows all the sorrows of the world
Lord Loss seeds the grief-starched trees
In the centre of the web, lowly Lord Loss bows his head
Mangled hands, naked eyes
Fanged snakes his soul line
Curled inside like textured sin
Bloody, curdled sheets for skin
In the centre of the web, vile Lord Loss torments the dead
Over strands of red, Lord Loss crawls
Dispensing pain, despising all
Shuns friends, nurtures foes
Ravages hope, breeds woe
Drinks moons, devours suns
Twirls his thumbs 'till the reaper comes
In the centre of the web, Lush Lord Loss is all that's left.
