Hell And Back

Clouds close in
Now darkened skies
Filled with fear 
And many cries

Children shouting
Men are scared
Mothers doubting
People died and no one cared

Once in danger
People become selfish
Everyone became a stranger
And the world became hellish

Loneliness now sings from above
And anger echo’s from below
Everyone abandoned the ones you loved
Now it’s raining pain and sorrow

I feel watched
Surrounded indeed
Buildings notched
Everyone is filled with greed

It’s now our life
Or our sanity
I’ve already died twice
And lost my humanity

I lost my life
My soul is gone
This endless strife
Why do I bother to carry on

A flock of crows
Forgiving none
Fetching souls
No one can run

Here I stand
Full of fear
Left with few hand in hand
I just wish I could disappear

This is a slaughter
Filled with laughter
Why would you do this to me
Will this last for eternity

The world is now rubble
Reduced to ash
Breathing alone is a struggle
Everything looks like trash

I can’t explain
All this pain
I swear I can’t be sane
Hatred now will reign

The gust of wind
I’m swept away
Have I sinned
Is this the price I pay

Ground is shaking
Tearing now
My heart is aching
And now gone somehow

I can’t explain
This searing pain
I can’t contain
It doesn’t matter, I’m not sane

The rain is blood
The lakes are fire
My face is to the mud
And the flames keep getting higher

It’s getting hot
It’s hard to see
Flames are everywhere
This cannot be

My eyes are melting
Draining from my skull
This pain is overwhelming
And I can only sit in this flaming hole

I have died ten times now
I don’t know why, I don’t know how
But every time I die
I go through it all again somehow

Flames surround me
Yet I feel so cold
Does no one feel sympathy
Because my pain is now tenfold

Everything is gone
Though my eyes are back
It’s only black but feels so wrong
Why am I here and for how long

A heavy pain rushes over me
But now that’s nothing new to see
I’m now drowning in tears
Flashbacks, memories and fears

I close my eyes
Cover my ears
Everything’s quiet
Everything disappears

As my eyes open
They are flushed with white
It aches my eyes but feels great
Maybe Jesus will give me a clean slate

I lay floating in this room of white
I don’t mind at all, not even slight
I will rest till something happens to me
Cause there is nothing to do till there is something to see
Could this be the end of my agony?
