And then you

I stand along the edge
Shouting out
My misery
To the gods 
Who do not listen

Hope is a dead thing 
Blood spit from my mouth 
Hacked away with metal
And her forgiving stare

So I court death 
The only opponent left
With harsh laughter 
And a mocking grin

For I am the god
Of the arena
With the sky above
And her corpse always beside me
I am the victor of empty things
