Enter and………

As I walk

the night

I can hear

the

darkers

call

The smell of

death and flesh

is strong

As I can

taste

I can hear

the voices

getting louder

For what I

pass is not

familiar

Yet I know

it well

enough

to

understand

its fears

I hear the

VOICES

THE

MOANS

yes even…….

As I come

to these

gates

in lies

the kingdom

of the shadows

Some how

i know

again

there

weight

What it

takes to

open

Even how

that once……

The moan speaks

as the darkers

are revealed

Where evil

lurks

in a place

HELLTOWN

The edge

of darkness

bound from

others who

knew not

life

but it’s shadows

Their soul

cold

world

knows not

truth

These truths

became the dirt

for helltown

to be built

These gates

are now

open

they seem

to know

WHO

To walk

through

barely

carrying

this

heavy

load

The bones

that I

have

collected

are the

skeletons

of my past

Lives that still

live

for reasons

only I……

I know to

enter

is a

no return

I don’t care

anymore

I want these

bones

to pick

my teeth

These DARKERS

will speak

and I must

hear the words

For the tongues

they …….

is the

redemption

I seek

  1. Whew! What a chain of thought, Sheldon! Nicely constructed, though, and I found myself following the trail to the end, both fascinated and repelled for what might be at the end. Time well spent!
