Cast Down At Mercy's Feet

Written by: Sandy Mason

             

                 Thoughts that were tame and quiet, now unleashed wild and frantic! 
                                     
                            Python desperation squeezes at the throat!
                                         
                                    Heart pounding like a racehorse!

                    Sweat forming perverse rivers seeking every crevice of the body.
.
          Understanding and judgment once reigned, now pain's throne rules over reality.
 
                      Darkness violates the light of the inner child of innocence. 

                                Hopelessness screams silently at the mind.

                                A bottomless pit awaits to embrace misery.
 
              Life's sea tossing from one tragedy to another has ceased to exist.

                      Suicide has claimed it's victim, cast down at mercy's feet.
