Knights of the Pain Table

A Camelot for Sufferers of Chronic Pain

Begging You for Mercy, Why won’t you Release Me – by Duffy

Duffy

 “You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me”

 Misere -Thy  Darke   Knyght of  Pain

I tighten the rein upon my destrier.  I draw my sword to hold it before the Darke Knyght of Pain.  The metals clash upon the grey rocks on this day of war.  

Sickness burns like a flame through my armour as adrenalin runs through my veins.  With lightening speed, the brand of the Darke Warrior leaves me dazed.    My cries echo in the silence of the glittering sea, amid tossing manes.    Upon the horizon’s edge I fall from my stallion. 

I grab at the pillars of hope and faith to help me stand.     Dismounted I taketh my poleaxe under the brooding skies.     Fighting breath to breath with this darke shadow my strength doth falter.     My gorget is sliced as my shield flies away.     My courage then breaks along with my defeated dreams.     I fall to my iron knees with worn out hearte,  as the clouds in the sky doth burn.

I sayeth  “Mercy – I’m begging you for mercy”. 

Bending down with his hand clutching the misericord, the Darke  Knyght moves into the light.   I look into eyes that are tender.  He lets me be. 

I will live another day to fight again. 

 The End

Mercy could be our theme song at The Knights of the Pain Table.   Those who suffer severe pain understand that moment where the pain is unbearable and beyond reach.  We thanketh Duffy for pouring her soul into the song giving it many interpretations.  That is true art.

“Mercy” is the second single from the album “Rockferry” by Duffy.   Aimee Anne Duffy is a Welsh singer-songwriter born in Gwynedd, Wales.   She began to sing in local bands in Nefyn when she was 15 years old.   In North America, Duffy is seen as the latest in a recent wave of British singers, such as Amy Winehouse.   This wave has been compared to the original “wave” led by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.   

Duffy’s “Mercy” won the 2008 Song of the Year MOJO Award.    By the end of May,  Rockferry had sold more than 700,000 copies in the United Kingdom.     This summer Duffy will spend the majority of July playing festivals in Europe.     Then at the end of July she’ll be coming to North America to play more festivals, like Lollapalooza.   Visit her MySpace Page for tour details.

We loveth this song “Mercy”, as it feels like it could be born in the 60’s perhaps in Motown.  We loveth music that is lost in time.

For those Knights who are speaking those words tonight, we preye that the Darke  Knyght will show  you mercy.

Mercy by Duffy

I love you
But I gotta stay true
My moral’s got me on my knees
I’m begging please
Stop playing games

 I don’t know what this is
But you got me good
Just like you knew you would
I don’t know what you do
But you do it well
I’m under your spell

You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me         
You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
I said you better release me

 Now you think that I
Will be some thing on the side
But you got to understand
That I need a man
Who can take my hand, yes I do

 I don’t know what this is
But you got me good
Just like you knew you would
I don’t know what you do
But you do it well
I’m under your spell

 You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
You got me begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
I said you better release me

 I’m begging you for mercy
Just why won’t you release me
I’m begging you for mercy
You got me begging
You got me begging
You got me begging

 Mercy
Why won’t you release me
I’m begging you for mercy
Why wont you release me
You got me begging you for mercy
I’m begging you for mercy
I’m begging you for mercy
I’m begging you for mercy
I’m begging you for mercy
Why won’t you release me
Bring it on

 Mercy
Begging you for mercy
You got me begging
Down on my knees
I said mercy
Begging you for mercy
You got me begging

    Lady Sharon, After having read your poem, I must tell you … you are not a scribe, but a wizard of the written word. If the evil dragon, known to us sufferers as health insurance, tries to stop you from finding your destiny of little or no pain, I suggest that you readth, WRITING FOR QUICK CASH by the helpful scribe, Loriann Hoff Oberlin and take on an additional trade. For example, if you enjoy that in which you are so skilled … look for that type of magazine online and find out if they seek the talent you hold. Go forth passionate wizard of the written word and lead the other Knights of the Pain Table in a glorious fight to the death of Camelot’s horrid dragon of health insurance. In you success and the passion of its previously fallen nights, may it die a horrid death as it suffers just as it has made us! Go forward brave knight! I wish thee well and thank thee for thy magical words.
    Lady Margaret, a new knight if I may be so blessed in thy welcoming

    Dear Lady Margaret,

    My apologies for this late response. I am so honoured that you were moved by my words. You are so kind to share your thoughts and encouragement. It means a great deal to me. So my heartfelt gratitude.

    You are a blessed new Knight and King Arthur dost welcome you to this sacred Camelot. Please have a seat at the Pain Table and we shall all fight the Darke Knyght together.

    Under the wings of Night, let us all ride side by side. I pray thee peace.

    Your Passionate Wizard, (love this description)

    Lady Sharon
