Rejoice In Hell

I killed the man that done me wrong 
And watched until his life was gone
With my heart I cast a spell
I wished his soul descend to hell
My revenge it was complete
As his life’s blood washed the street

I thought my demons laid to rest
But something burned in my breast
In broken sleep a vision came
Of open hole with melting flame
A black clad figure called me near
I obeyed though cold with fear

‘Come and see your enemy pay’
The voice compelled I did obey
There in molten rock and fire
Tortured souls could not expire
The tongues of flame licked their flesh
As past misdeeds they did enmesh

My screaming victim I then did see
But his tortured screams came from me
And when his features I did trace
It was my own that I did face
This woeful being with evil leer
Caught my hand and pulled me near

‘Welcome to hell’ his voice did crack
As the Devil gave a fearsome laugh
I felt the heat upon my skin
As to the fire I was drawn in
‘No escape’ I heard the voice
‘For ever burn let us rejoice’

    Eamon, I have heard people with near-death experiences say that we relive every pain we caused others. The story told through your amazing poem has quite a ring of truth for me. Let's make a pact to wish good things for others and treat them with kindness so we won't experience this kind of torment. Outstanding entry for the contest! Wishing you success. Love, Carolyn
