Relentless Years
Author: Rick Ryckman


I will hold tightly the silence that lingers.
Do not shout or whisper your bludgeoning.
The dreary darkness continues to drag slowly.
The years of my winter are suffocating.
Torment reins supreme in the black mist lurking.
The beast is not in disguise.
Seduction steals across my mind.
Trying to escape my incarceration.
Raging against the restraints in my cage.
The rain is pouring down flooding.
Till the end of time misery still smears.
