The End

You have only enough power over me left
for me to write this down
I am ending this tug-of-war between us
setting my end of the rope on the ground
I searched everywhere for answers
and this is what I found
Something cold and dead and dark
that should be in the ground
I spoke words of forgiveness
but there was not an echo of a sound
No more a drop of dew in your web
Around your fingers wound
I have freed myself from your chains
And it is towards peace that I am bound.
