The Damned

Inhale deep
with closed eyes,
the sky darkens
the breeze dies.
The land burns
becoming dust
buildings fall
covered with rust.
Falling now
into the deep,
the voices lure
the beings creep.
Down here creatures
cold and still,
listen and wait
for the next kill.
Living, suffering
an eternal fate,
filled with nothing
but burning hate.
Roaming earth
an empty shell,
with a soul locked
in the pits of hell.

Wow, this is great. I love the not-so-subtle darkness and demonic side of this poem.
