Paean to Pain

Paean to Pain

Is there an incantation
that could free me

From my chthonic wall of pain?

I cry the words of solace that I've never heard,

The words that echo from the wall of pain.

There are none to answer, out beyond the wall;

There are none here with me to hear my cries.

So, yes, I am free:

Free to cry as loudly and as long

As the pain will bear it.
