Hope

I know too much,
But there is no advantage in it.
Retaliation is too exhausting.
And you never quit
No matter where you are,
Even when you are miles away.
Your greedy, bloodless, hand reaches out
Seeking revenge for what YOU did to me.
And I am not the only one.
If I could protect the others, I would,
But you are too determined.
The pain you inflict 
Keeps your lifeless body upright,
But we are still alive.
You are already dead.

    I can't even imagine the inspiration/triggers behind this writing. This was very hard-hitting & filled with a touch of a hopefully tamed rage. Great lines!

    Nothing about me is tame.
