No Mercy


Floating just above the surface

she moves as swiftly

as the fast flowing river

at the end of the winter

Her veins engorged with ice

She shows no mercy

Charming the gathering crowd

she mesmerizes

as the snake dances before her

obeying her every demand

Her hands orchestrate deception

She shows no mercy

Stunning in her power

she sows the seeds of discontent

Reaping her garden of despair

prompting it to grow

using raw emotion to fertilize

She shows no mercy

She’s more familiar

to some than others

But she visits us all

Known by many monikers

Commonly called Grief or Mourning

She permeates all that exist

She shows no mercy
