A world beyond the veil welcomes you.

The threads of Reality never long last;
Trapped in Time's shroud and Space unsurpassed.
But eyes, gone dark, open tall doors of brass
To a strange world concave - like melting glass.

A time out of time, beyond ebb and flow
Where low whispers rise from a place called Below;
"Learn our truths - praise, for you, will grow
So long as we taste your flesh and your bone."

Pay them no heed, but them pay in screams;
To escape Below's call, it's enough to appease.
Beyond their Black Forest, across scarlet streams
There waits the One City and its own sort of schemes.

Promises of wealth, love and long life:
All these and more secrete hidden price.
Debt here is something even Reapers abide;
To carry when deceased won't undo such ties.

A land filled with dangers, secret and terrible
So why traverse a world of such riddling perils?
It's true the evils here hold more than many levels,
Yet a place beyond them all is worth the test of mettle.

The final destination leaves all without speech:
Sands of azure grain upon a sunset beach.
There Eternal Twilight soothes souls to peace;
Or so I still hope, for I've yet to come in reach.

unmasked delusions

I really like the setting here and the unique, dark imagery and this creepy line really is chilling : "so long as we taste your flesh and your bone" that in particular but the whole poem gave me this eerie sinking feeling. Good job
