Poetry: Thou Shalt Not

So it goes

Another line in the sand

I crave contentment


To keep chained a beast

Malignance given physical stature

Restrain the anger

Grown cold from imprisonment

Yet still smoldering

Eagerly awaiting that breath

The puff of air

To ignite the conflagration

I have fought this creature

Time and again

Shackled it

Listened to its taunts and jeers

Our battles were hidden

Raging through the night

The slavering nightmare 

Lurking in my breast

I still hear the chains

Jangling in the night

Desperately waiting

For the line to be crossed
