Don't stay at home on a rainy night...... when no one can hear you

 

I am all alone this night, no one can hear me, but I can hear them
It is raining and I have drawn the curtains closed
Even if I cover my ears, I can still hear them,
 I can still hear the angels
 
Their song is barely audible, through the hammering of the rain
It slithers through my window
Wrapping round my limbs, torturing my brain
The song of the angels
 
Evil words of unknown notes, words that speak of the pain forthcoming
Excruciating, agonising, mind-numbing horrors
Screams of torture and merciless despair
The fate of all those who be doomed
 
It is in the very air I breathe, soaking into my skin, my hair, my mind
A rhythmic beat, drums I can't escape
There are no sweet chimes of mercy,
In the angels' song
 
I shut my eyes, cover my ears, hide under my blanket, I am desperate
But their grip on me is tighter than ever
I know they are coming, they will not stop
I can't save myself
 
They are moving, my window is cracking, the curtains are blowing
But why is there wind, when my window is still shut?
I tremble, the rain is lessoning, the song louder
They are still coming, still singing
 
The rain has stopped, the window has smashed, glass everywhere
I am all alone this night, no can hear me,
I wish it was still raining, then I might not hear
The angels' song.
 
The gates are open, I can feel the heat of the inferno beyond
This is my fate, I can't avoid it, but I'm scared
Above my screams
I can still hear the angels

This is really good. You drawed me in with the first verse, and the suspense was superb building to the climax. Great job. If you have time could you check out my FALLEN FROM GRACE poem. It would be much appreciated. L.I.T.

Your poem is very descriptive and took me on an emotional roller coaster. Your words flow smoothly, and have a sort of lyrical essence to them. I loved the poem, good job!

There was a lot of very vivid imagery in this poem and I really enjoyed reading it. It has a very good structure - James.
