What have I done…
I curse thee, Nessus, for your evil wits!
Your wicked whispers deprived me of my Sun
His soul departed from the pyre Philoctetes lit
And I am the assassin that is to blame

I cannot live with this burden of my murder!
My body will soon, too, be engulfed by the purifying flame!
Thanatos, come, I won’t delay our meeting any further
