Long race of the ragged upon hell’s well-paved path

But sorry’s the hardest word to say.
It’s just too bad I can’t turn the clock.
So now I’m done, come what may,
I’ll sit here waiting for the dreaded knock.

Grievously wronged you. Yes I know.
Grossly hurt you. I cannot deny.
So I’ll take, all of your blows
Without resisting, not a try.

I will take well-earned abuse,
I will be beaten down by rage.
But there is one thing I will not lose,
I won’t let you put me in a cage.

Don’t forgive me, surely you shouldn’t,
Not till you hear me speak my part.
To take empty forgiveness. I couldn’t,
Till perchance quench your flaming darts.

I will take well-earned abuse,
I will be beaten down by rage.
But there is one thing I will not lose,
I won’t let you put me in a cage.

I’ll brace for your righteous anger,
I’ll try and ignore the hurting letters.
I fight ‘gainst imminent danger,
Of losing something that really matters.

I apologise. I’m on my knees.
Don’t forgive me just yet.
I won’t seek others to shelter me,
Because I hope the clouds clear yet.

I will take well-earned abuse,
I will be beaten down by rage.
But there is one thing I will not lose,
I won’t let you put me in a cage.

I won’t let us be driven apart
I can’t let it. Let it destroy this.
This episode on a foolish lark,
Erasing pipe-dreams of endless bliss.

So into the screaming tempest I face,
Enduring your acid tongue’s painful lashes.
Because in life’s long, long race
For precious friendship this soul thrashes.

I would resovle to stop blundering blindly in the bog of foolishness, but the lights are out and I step from quicksand to snake’s fangs
