Amethyst

Amethyst From the depths within the deepest wells Amidst our friendship A confection of sorts The darkest of all that dwells A blissful taste of blindness Tends to saturate this darkness Inside a living world of Hell Spoken words that HATE is stirred And so it goes as The Devil grows A cauldron Inside I fell Wished to death and cast His spell Naked eyelids from behind us fell Bound in endless MADNESS Damned to eternal SADNESS Forsaken as He chimes His bell For whom it tolls Blackened spirits rose And so it goes as The Devil grows A resurrection of forgotten Souls Shadows of faceless strangers Dance and play in the face of danger Silenced without a tongue to tell Masquerading these dark secrets Then we laugh as it's laced We drink it With this knot I slipped into my hole It's a Fairy Tale in the Hell we know And so it goes as The Devil grows With blood as my tears Stay Gold

Christian, this dark poem was filled with excellent imagery about hell. I can't help seeing the irony of your name in contrast to this creative write! Thank you for entering my contest :)
