The Pendulum of Power

Revenge is such a tempting evil
It's quite the dangerous tool
And now I find it in my heart,
This fire which now burns cool

There's too much power in my hands
I sense it in my fingers
You'd be a fool to stick around
My heart's revenge still lingers

When you call I'm all aware
To keep this evil down
It wants to feast upon your heart
And tear your whole world down

It tempts me all the time
Retribution for my pain
But I could not cause such awful harm
No matter what the gain

I know the damage it would cause
I experienced it myself
It's nothing short of a living hell
My power's on the shelf

The End
