Like a ravenous leech you cling

Until my body can take no more.

Praying on me day and night

Unaffected by my tears that pour.

Silently you lurk in me,

Relentlessly taking all I am,

Ever present with no relief,

Apparent you don't give a damn!

Laughing at me mockingly

Leaving me in a crumbled heap,

You stand your guard inside my cell,

Sadistically enjoying this vigil you keep.

Unable to fight you off,

Continuous agony prevails,

Keeping me your helpless prisoner,

Subjecting me to constant assails.
