Hell Looming Behind Me

September 7, 2009
toungues of fire licked theferroconcrete. the blistering heatarduous for bare skin to sustain. salt filled drops. dew from barren eyes: only fueled the incadenscent beast as it welted legs, blackened flesh now crumbling ash. uncannily beautiful, the flickering crimson spiralled toward heaven. a beautiful place. pure and unblemished. a blind spot within the glaring light.
one cloud too far from reach.
struggling fingers too short.
grasping thin air which fleed fom fists. determined hands pleading for the unshakable covert of the Sanctum
and never being filled with the triumph of sucsess.
residing in hell. submerged beneath ebony obscurity.

condemned by the purity of mother

condoned by the sins of father
my face reflected within the puddle of tears.
Hell looming behind me.
