Savage Torment
Author: Rick Ryckman


Stranded in the forest of dark and quiet dreams.
The pitch-blackness with its violent force strikes.
I am crawling and bleeding at the crossroads.
Riding between hell and death.
I have seen the many kings of time.
Onward through the night I look for freedom.
There is no exquisite escape.
Death will come and bring the delivery from pain.
