Pain Eagle


Tawny Owl (Strix aluco) pouncing a running mouse
Tawny Owl (Strix aluco) pouncing a running mouse

 

Predator of pain –

Pouncing, ripping flesh from bones

Spitting out the fur.

 

Playing with its food –

Bloodied chunks and nerves afire

Consciousness untouched.

 

Prometheus bound –

Agony that never ends

Death still kept at bay.

 

prometheus-bound

 

Dreaded daily grip –

Piercing muscles, shredding meat

Screaming on the rock.
