I bow before you, King
My heart failed
Like a motherless chick
Cold’s now freezing me

His warmth is gone
His light’s gone
Death shadowed it

Now death’s knocking in my head
I’m breathing pain
Endless questions flooding my brain

Can I ask one or a few?
Why snatch him like a thing?

He was the warm one
You left the cold hearts
Scattered across the city
Like a pride of lions
Why are they so slippery?

Without your answers
I’m eternally bleeding
