BREVITY OF PEACE

Written by: Eric Siedzikowski

When alive and the soul falters in relinquishing
the anguished memories of moments,
perhaps of loves that were never meant to flourish;
People around you shall appear as malefic beasts
thrashing at your soul.

During the brevity of the body's dying breath
(should the matrimony of flesh and peace set forth)
one shall recall and arrive at the fruition
that those same people were verily the Lord's angels
setting the soul free from an earthly perdition.

And should the soul meander its way to eternal hell;
The only facet of it that shall ignite
is that of which harbors those anguished memories of moments,
perhaps of loves that were never meant to burgeon;
Though,sadly enough burned the mind into believing 
that the Lord could not douse such tortured thoughts
with the serenity of His love.
