Inspired by religion.

writhing inside blind eyes

sunken deep in dark sockets

feel them squirm beneath

flies swarm in plague of lies

time given as numbers warning 

here found in decptions body

grave marker statement

untainted by angels

walk past as truth

take the path

a long way


threat taken

and met again

derision is solid mockery

given in what now sounds

fate is met in a crawling forward

life as existence to found in what is real

now fear to be vanquished forever

and as I sleep I find peace

dreams will rise inside

and worms still creep.
