The Awakening

A. W. Nutter

Suspended in a darkened shroud
Screaming but making no sound
Naked and vulnerable feeling alone
Time standing still in the unknown

Unable to stop the body from trembling
The scenes from your life begin revealing
Sins and atrocities which were committed
Secrets on display, nothing being omitted

Satan striding through the lake of fire
His torturous kingdom is no ones desire
Spirit retreating into its earth bound shell 
Safe from persecution for a short spell

Suddenly awakening from the nightmare
With a sulphur odor still lingering in the air
Guilt washes over your earth bound form
As on bended knee you pray for reform

    Many of my own dreams I awaken from I ask myself if I was dreaming then, or am I dreaming now? Poetry like this is food for thought, good stuff.
