For a chance at the mildest of reliefs
We might risk much to gain a loss thereby
In sensation, costs incurred in imbalances
Experienced to offset dire sickness born
Into the form, framed by a cage of compensation.
Agony as synonym for existence, pleasure
Not only sought but drawn up from depths
Dank as forgotten tombstones, dredged indeed,
Dodging many obstacles during the ascent,
That apotheosis small sometimes by comparison.
