9 Hours of Faces

 

 

A view to secrecy beyond control,

mahogany curtains shielded the council.

In the first hour of light,

trembles from earth silenced by a word.

 

In the second hour,

visions fell upon the world of life.

Bridges mourned the dry rivers,

a thousand doves died from falling rain.

 

In the coldest moments of the third hour,

greed breaks from the skin.

Wars played like chess,

violins harmonize the prophecy from heaven.

 

the fourth witching hour,

gallows hang a million new souls.

Dark armies stage near Jerusalem,

Maniacal laughter escapes from his paled lips.

 

Looking beyond the sea ways of the fifth hour,

touching the scolding Atlantic ocean.

Wrath spills buckets of sin onto the streets,

Mahogany curtain opens to reveal a face.

 

Beyond the death of the sixth hour,

hospitals vanish without a trace.

Mayhem stalks the world,

plagues torments the ships on the seas.

 

Seventh hour of vengeance,

thorns of God reach down.

A third of the world burns,

Satan angered by the deception.

 

Eighth hour of redemption,

silver winged angels arrive.

Tending the wounds of converted souls,

Darkness invades this dying world.

 

Ninth hour is the Face of Evil,

Satan baring full control of dementia.

Tasting the holy fires of light,

failed to procure his agenda.

Tossed into the eternal flames of the abyss.
