Remnants of a Plague

suffering is but a consequent
a choice long ago once made
from infancy till senescence
a remnant of a ne’er dormant
plague spawned by guiltless
desire’s self-centered shame

paradise’s birthplace of evil
a novel thought lost in time
yet ever-present in the mind
an aforesaid learned whisper
in silence borne o’er aeons
its sentient purpose known

living manifested darkness
humanity’s forgetful curse
resplendent beauty hidden
shrouded in evil’s affright
yet temptation’s revelation
witnessed its woeful plight

e’er secretive shining one
Dante’s inferno yet waits
Megiddo’s final judgment
miscreant demonic voices
freedom’s unseen enemies
ne’er again shall be revived
