My Body Hurts in a Hundred Places

My body hurts in a hundred places,
my soul in a thousand more.
There is no peace. I pace the floor
and wonder what’s in store.

Don’t think that you can stop me.
Don’t think there is a chance.
No one could ever do that.
No one could break the trance.

I let the genii out of the bottle.
I opened Pandora’s box.
I flew too close to the cruel sun
and crashed upon the rocks.
