No Kingdom Come...

The knife was deep,
blood continues to seep,
as he thought about how life
comes and goes,
when you die, only God knows,
death remained a difficult concept to grasp,
as he gasped and he gasped,
he regained a seated position,
as he waited for the transition,
from life to death,
as he felt his final breath,
he expected Angels and Demons,
one with bloodthirsty anticipation,
and the other with forgiveness without contemplation,
but there was none,
life was over just like that,
and there was no Kingdom Come...

    Creepy and dark, yet so enthralling, as it seems only you can write them. *^_^* Love Christie

    At least your thoughts are harmless, I'm sure they are as fleeting as warm weather in February. Better dig a deep hole, maybe it will make you think you're having a deep thought

    Frightening and dark images soaked in ageless mysteries. Great piece of writing, Frank! Love, Robin

    Ahh yes, The Kingdom was where he was aye? Heaven is Earth the world when things are going according to the "Tao" the way. Hell is when things are out of balance in chaos. Many religions believe this. Great write! Please enter my Chair Tale contest. Light & Love Debbie
