Despondency

I’m tainted with a stain

A wretched mark of Cain

Life I can’t retain

Succor I can’t obtain

 

The ceaseless stark refrain

Of never ending pain

Of hopes all down the drain

Trying is in vain.

 

No culprit to arraign

I’m slicing up my vein

Death I will attain

I sink in a sewer main

 

I hear sweet “Lady Jane”

I see a scarlet train

Of regnant regal reign

Dreams lost, I am insane
