We stormed the Castle walls
after the eternal siege,
& saw rotting corpses in ugly sleep, without dignity
but with a peace denied those few we found alive.
Their eyes were almost closed
& damp with pitiful terror.
Their mouths made sounds we could hear but
could not understand.
We looked around us for reason, the evidence
of a final stand, but we found nothing.
Then the walls began growing, we were
surrounded, helpless, scared, abandoned
& at last we understood.
