The Pain ‘train

Art by DanteCyberMan

The very bed
in which I lay betrays,
the perfection
of balance not achieved

Painful disturbed slumber
wasting away,
this human frame
upon which meat is grieved

Despite night’s prayer
or intervening fae, comfort
in no measure
is cast my way

Gnawing of muscle
wrenched deep into bone
unrelenting torment
no mercy shown

The perfection
of balance unachieved
fated pain entombed
within fleshy case

This human frame
upon which meat is grieved,
counts umpteen days
until its coup de grace…
