beyond the pale

Life inflicted a resounding defeat on you,
Down the drain you lied flat as a pancake;
And for many years you were silent still,

A phrase of call in the eye of the storm might have woke you up,
And because the fullness of your heart was needled,
You rummaged the future tirelessly,
You searched hard for faint solace;
For the last drop of hope,

But ever since you came back we never ceased to cry;
We never stopped complaining!
But we know who you are; we know you very well,
And we don’t wish to compose your innermost breath;
For we watched when you died the death.
