I canít tame the demons ravaging your soul,
No, and I canít unchain the dungeon door
If youíve stolen and swallowed the key -
Youíve chosen to wallow and wade,
Locked up so tight in your dank misery.

I can offer a warm, calm hand through the iron bars,
I can smooth your hair back from your eyes
And smile, oh such a dazzling, loving smile -
Itís such a small, comforting thing,
Welcome solace, if only for a little while.

If I thought a sacrifice would suffice,
Iíd dig up the bones and light the fire,
Iíd trade in my name without shame -
But a token I am not, nor a symbol, or a clue,
Iím undeniably spicy real and I expect quite the same.

I watch from afar while you tear your world in two,
I stand in the line of fire, knowing the consequences,
Watching you dig your grave a teaspoon at a time,
Helpless to help, unable to walk away,
Inspiration, IĎve found, can become a crimeÖ

I'm very impressed with the cadence of your five line style. This is most well written.

intriguing write here...when does inspiration become obsession? Does that which inspires also destroys? You pose interesting questions in this well composed piece.
