Damned

Damned
By AJ O’Brien.

A dark soul has departed.

Climbing toward heaven
it tumbled and fell,
arriving quietly
in a town named Hell.

And their flesh is burning
and the dead keep dying,
pleading for an end
but Lucifer is lying.

Wretched heads embedded
upon spikes of gold,
their wicked thoughts
to the highest bidder sold.

Weeping belated tears
for a depraved past,
the newcomer
is into a furnace cast.

Whispers a dancing demon
with a practiced sign,
your soul is my soul
and forever you shall die.
