Moloch - A Tale of Fury

Moloch is a continuous prose poem about the fall and reconciliation of man. It is the story of a person who must face the realization of his greatest fears: the loss of his love; an absolute surrender to hopelessness, suspicion, jealousy and self-hatred, all hope, trust and faith in ruins.
An essentially human tale about falling in love, with all the desire and loss, powerlessness and rage that deep love involves; a poem about rising up from the ashes; a fluid narrative that gives insight into an intelligent and restless mind.
