His Bad Dream

Horrific eyes stare back at me
His mouth sewn shut by agony
Face delivers silent plea
Liberate him, set him free
For he knows death does disagree

Twisted features do implore
That I would grant him ev’rmore
The fate he has grown to adore
As me, he has come to abhor
Please set before him true death’s door

This torment that’s inflicted on
The one once known to sit upon
The grassy meadow, care foregone
Can now do naught but be withdrawn
From life he’s lost and will that’s gone

Again, again they spin him out
From death’s embrace, the ending route
Inflicting on him too real doubt
Of the faith, once so devout
Fire soaking limbs throughout

Endless cycle turning him
Through life and death, unnatural, grim
The future looking ‘ever dim
For him to escape pain’s tall brim
That spits him out on its own whim

No solace will he find in this
For never will come death’s cool kiss
Denying him eternal bliss
Instead life’s toying brought amiss
His stay’s length in this abyss

I liked your rhyming scheme.  The only thing is I had trouble understanding what the poem was about.  Does he want to die?  Is he in danger of being murdered?  What's going on?  I really did like it, though.  It had a lot of emotion in it.  It sound slike it had to have been a pretty scary and disturbing dream.

He wants to die, but he's not allowed to stay dead. It's pretty morbid. Haha. Not exactly the best way to wake up. :P
