In timeless breaths
it bites, gnaws at my soul.
Hammering at the door.
“Where is your master!”
Bellowing whilst he crawls
None withstanding, crashing upon the door.
“The master is I, and I master none!”
Shouting, raving to a score
Silent reply and silence heard only by the door.
Yet, Still I lay a-waiting
Forever abound by this droll
Crashing and rasping upon the door.
