and a living puzzle i cannot solve

and a bloody chest i cannot open

the Key is there

within reach

within sight

Therein lies the power

and the balance

between death and life

i reach

and i know

to grasp It would spell

the end of the murky

and shuddering cave

wherein Hangs

the Key

which appeared to me

which unlocks the red chest

sinking in the myre —

— and if the puzzle i cannot

solve lacks the centre-piece
