Faces of fire

Sirens scream...demons dream...devils laughing...dirty deeds
Sour seeds...wicked weeds...quicksand...chaos queens
Night falls...day breaks...firey lake...no escape
Seconds...minutes...strike the hour...gone like ghosts
Faces of fire

Hands of Hell...sweating...bleeding
Thoughts of terror...scared and seething
Beasts of burden...Incest...breeding
Smelling...hearing...seeing...disbelieving
Rights...lefts...failure...tests
No way out...only in
Tear the ticket...take the ride
Burning 4ever...drastic and dire
Faces of fire

wars...wastelands...life...death
Plots...plans...mice...men
Rats...roaches...crunching...cracked
Driven...dumped...travelers trapped
Billion roads to ruination
U-turn signs...devistation
Millions...mental masterbation...orgasm...orgies...feasts of flesh
Savage...sex...satan...stretched
Hitmen and hunters...once for hire
Faces of fire

Praying...pleading...begging...beating
Memories...miswired...meaning...moments mispent...too late now to repent
Anger...ashes...doom...dust
Rivers...running...rabbits...rust
Lightning...lips...surging...speaking
Consequences...sowing...reaping
Coldness...creeping...love is leaving
Guilty as charged...end of the trial...feel the heat
Faces of fire

    Very confrontational write, Anthony! Many people see hell as a place of fire. I see hell as a place very cold, where one is unable to get warm. A place where there is no love. The last verse is quite poignant...."coldness... creeping ...love is leaving". Indeed it is such a waste of time and energy to live a life of self gratification, concerned more over material than the spiritual, and to live a life of meaning by loving as God does.

    Yeow, scenes of havoc and despair, Anthony. It's like watching a series of clips, reminding me of Pink Floyd. Each and every action will have a consequence, but one can't always foresee what the outcome will be. Could be "Faces of fire"..anger, embarrassment, sadness, regret.... This is a very busy piece, and keeps the mind rolling.:) Best to you and yours, Mikki
