Misery - Poem by Darrel Davis

Come to me O misery, and I shall entertain you for a spell.
You have been a constant companion all my days.

I wouldn't want to deny you your joy.
You are no less than I deserve, no more than I desire.

You have bourne a grudge against me. I cannot resist you sway.
I lean into your fury and you shape my soul like a branch.

There is no comfort for which to flee...at least in this world.
