From the Depths

In the depths of the ocean, I am waiting.
The monsters of the deep obey my call.

As I rise to the surface, I see your fear.
It is not hard to fill your mind with anguish.

I walk on the ocean floor.
I swim near the shore.

My power grows as I see you flee.
It is rewarding to vanquish your weapons.

It will not be long before you die.
I may acquire the curse of your family.

I sleep soundly in the depths of the ocean.
I command the ocean tide.

Once you are gone, I will find another.
I am fearless and I will grow stronger today.
