Dead - A poem by me

Document
Cover Image

Walking towards the light I see


Stepping back, realizing what's ahead of me


Pivoting around in a quick jerky motion


Running Away all the faster


Swooping by head back, taking a second glance


Squinting, cringing, the lights so blinding


An ease, so soothing, the warm joyful feel


One step back is three more closer


Seizing up, nerves on edge


Hairs standing up like a million toy soldiers


My eyes are locked, carefully, cautiously watching


The walls are jarring and the brincks are falling


Everything is so dark it's all so leery


Becoming more aware, each second ticks by


My eyes are open, pupils adujusting


The surrounding become clear for me to see


The wind howls like a banshee demon


Standing upon a vast barren plain


The ground, cracked, dried and grey


Surrounded by fiery mountains of molten rock


The sun glows black, skies a hue of red


I am stuck in place, as if mailed to the ground


A high pitched schrill echoes in the distance


Louder and closer with each beat of heart


My heart beats faster and louder, like a renegade drum


Closer and louder till there is an explosion


The smoke has cleared and all is silent


I'm at the fiery gates of the devil's front door


Standing, hypnotized by the fiery abode


My mind races to make sense of it all


My God, is this what's to be


I begin to yell and scream,


falling down, beggin perched on both knees


I yell and scream and yell and scream


No one. Not there. My eternity.
