Tyrant emotions

Edward Munch's Scream

Edward Munch's Scream

Among the dunes of scorching sand
In the empty barren lands
A fickle conscious is all there is
To guide my soul to tempted bliss

I grope and hobble and then I crawl
It has been long since my fall
But in despair I refuse to lose
Pride stands tall in recluse

Guiding the flesh into the fire
Directing upon masochistic ire
Holding up a torch of hope
Till courage threatens to elope

And among the blazes of insanity
The tyrant rises of from depravity
And morality stands aloof
Humanity bows and stoops
