Chasing Pain

The steel door closes; there’s no place for cover.

Winter chills navigate the length of the spine,

Though a fighter can also be a lover;

Focus as the ally will be their lifeline.

When the bell rings, they merge on the pain highway.

Refuge vanishes; their skills on display.


Fans wait, excited, for finishing touches;

One mistake, the win is ripped from their clutches.
