You have in your hand all you desired

Yet your soul withers and is dying
Mayhaps you were mistaken in your choice
Regretting the decisions
The words were spoken in anger by a cruel voice

The smug triumphant demeanor
In shame long forsaken and lost
The desolate chill in early winter of the senses
Now comes the metastasis of feared black frost

You have in your hand all you desired
Yet silent in torment, your spirit weeps
Rest comes without choice in the guise of exhaustion
A weary conscience infected sleep

I say again
You have in your hand all you desired
Pray tell what madness in your mind have you sired
Though with company
Still alone in a cold empty room
‘With a slowly dwindling fire
But at least you have in your hand all you desired
