It’s hot down here

It’s hot down here
By AJ O’Brien.

Captured by death
came at me from behind
the devil lay in wait,
stole my soul.
Man, am I in a bind.

Whispered a rancid demon,
Hear the Master’s word
you will be set aflame
and your pleas for death
shall go unheard.

You are kidding me
I’m really at a loss,
what did I do wrong?
I don’t belong down here.
Go get your boss.

You will burn for eternity
your soul be dammed,
the stench of your corruption
shall bring joy
to this unholy land.

You’re not listening to me, are you?

Desperation

Desperation
By AJ O’Brien.

And through darkness
with hope they tread
in search of the demon,
willing to return life
to an innocent, dead.

Silent love wrapped in rags
and the quest did end
upon a crimson hill,
time to meet
an unwanted friend.

Dancing, a shadow white
the beast did appear,
and the air was corrupted
as they both did knell,
two hearts drowning in fear.

Your God has forsaken thou
so you call upon me,
the King of the dead
deaths ancient dancer
beneath the Hanging Tree.

But worry not, cried the demon.
I shall return life to your daughter.
And in return, he sniggered,
One of you
I must slaughter.
