I am the tethered beaten soul

That Grief cares nothing for

I’m chained and lashed and

Tortured so…till blood no longer pours


Waiting for the pain to stop

I leave my body behind

The master will come again soon

And Grief will consume my mind


I am the weary, lifeless creature

Enslaved by the master named Grief

In darkened corner I hug the stone wall

For its cold and callous relief


Here no creature small or wretched

Dare cross my shadow’s path

They know the destructive outcome of his

Miserable, intolerable wrath


I am the tethered beaten soul

That Grief cares nothing for

I am chained and lashed and

Tortured so...till blood no longer pours


Sleep will not even grace me with

Her gentle, somber reprieve

Nor Laughter with His jovial

Playful ways and games of tease


The master Grief has stripped me bare

Of all that once was me

And left a shell of nothingness

For the sake of hearing my plea


So Grief and I will linger here

Till one or the other breaks

Grief may be the master

But I hold the key to both our fates.

Reviewed by . ignis 3/5/2005
Extracted from the obvious view of personal experience, these words become greater than life. Projected onto humanity as a whole, the slave race we are, created for the conveinience of higher beings whose evil imagination matches the power of their minds, these words become greater than death. Less than eight years away from another encounter there is plenty of reason to fear. Yet death can free us from all that. I wonder where you've gone.
