Cruel Hands

what cruel hands
must cause thy pain and anguish so
to mend thy own intentions for self inflicted pain
To inflict thy pain on this poor creature
that once in range became the target for your misery
as I see this poor creature
lie there on the table wagging its tail
still keeping hope, I wonder
what pain and anguish it can endure before giving up
thy own words and blows that scar so deep
as they seem
pour salt on an open wound
What cruel hands
did cause this pain
