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.
