Based off of the book, The Rook by Steven James.
Any moment now
the air in her lungs
will disappear along
with her freedom.
The rusted chains
hold her down as she struggles,
but she can't break free.
She's drowning in her tears.
She's almost gone now,
there's death in her eyes.
Open and wide, staring at the one
who held her life in their hands.
The last bubbles float to the top,
and she's no longer in pain.
Hell is just a memory now.
Who could do this?
Who could take an innocent life,
and feel absolutely nothing?
It's the man from the painless hell.
everyone's normal [until you get to know them]
