Your Prometheus


I watch the sky

The day begins

Wishing to die

Sun burning skin


My chains are tight

My back it aches

Day and night

Each hour takes


The vulture calls

I twist away

It starts to fall

The world goes grey


Its claws sink in

Its beak is sharp

Tearing my skin

Towards my heart


I do not scream

I do not cry

This is no dream

And I know why


My theft was just

My intentions true

I paid the cost

For loving you


The fire you use

I gave to you

I take the abuse

The whole day through


Chained and bound

To this stone

Through you I found

A sense of home


You’re warm and free

For ever, thus

Remember my love

Your Prometheus
