II. Depression the Agonizing

by Widdershins

Age Group: Adult

As Depression did horribly fail
so had won Depression the second, following his father’s trail
and now the oppressed people greet with heavy heart the new reign
as the Agonizing comes aboard to take his sulking claim
pertaining to his majesty’s style,
he kills agonizingly slowly with a cruel smile,
surreptitiously licking wounds until they ache
making their devouring an agonizingly long wait
unheard of in the Molester’s rule
this time the one doomed to die is the Fool.
Caged in advertent limbo is trapped Comfort, Solace and even Joy
and the Agonizing plays with his aunt’s heart like a toy
murdering her lovely works before her eyes,
until all Comfort and Solace hear are her cries.
On his throne of knurly wood from ghastly trees
does his unending winter torture the core of all weaves
he coldly strips Heart’s chest bare
and softly calls out the horrors locked away in there

…to his cold command all are silent and grave
no one daring to laugh
for fear of his agonizing wrath
and crying from loneliness and in shame
does his consort, Malice, give birth to Lady Pain…

The Agonizing’s tyranny is boundless and enhanced
as the gladiator Suffering thrusts his cruel lance
and from the blooming pools of blood, silver escapes
as Heart harshly spits out the poison that had been lying in wait
and these wraiths drifted across my face
as mention arises of unspeakable names…
Subjected to Fear, the people wail
through the aggressive agreement of Wind’s icy gale
and for a moment Heart stops dead,
light fleeing his eyes as he sadly shakes his head
before uttering the most bitter laugh of scorn
and all fall down before the True King to mourn—
but Heart had done the unforgivable,
and Depression’s efforts to squelch his life did triple, but
with this laugh, Heart felt renewed
and he could withstand the hailstorm from the Cruel…
The Agonizing’s pale face turns whiter than before
as his Cruel dream returns to him tattered and torn,
then, onto the stage steps quietly Lord Madness, and with
one smile envelopes Depression with the arms of his daughter, Sadness,
and Depression, stricken with feeling,
feels his unheard of “touched” sent reeling
and Sorrow's words have made the Agonizing weep
while Lord Madness casts over him the veils of eternal sleep…
