A Poem About Sorrows

The Sounds of Silence

Beware the Well of Sorrows


So deep and dark is this well
So easily it is to be drawn to or from
Souls will be lost or they will be won

Once the drinker has succumb
Succulent Flesh, their demons do slurp
Bullets straighter shot then if; by Wyatt Urp

Though soul sweetened, vapors hum
So it smells, but bitter waters taste the scum
They bring only desperations, sadness, and fears

Raining; from holy angels' tears
One tiny sip will set you upon the floor
Yet so cool and refreshing you live here no more

This poisoning is so fast, its last breath remains
Black flash and silent flesh quickened by Death
Stagnate waters birth, their bodies only worth

Angels and Demons fight upon that last breath
And scurry away with each one their pride
Away in a hurry as squirrels with their prize

As they lounge sweet upon your tongue
Derived from Hell's own Demons'
Who drool for they anticipate

All fleshy humans deaths fulfilled
Never very shall they have their fill
Never very shall they again get to kill

Demons' lost in Hell fires burning
As they munch upon lifeless bones
They see their chores and begin to moaning

As they descend the long and narrow shaft
Dreading the long awaiting fast
With task masters whips and chains

Slashing their backs and smashing their brains
Demons dreaming of fleshy remains
As to when that next sucker shall be drawn to and in

So it all may begin again

Happy Halloween ;o)

Thank you epigramman, for that lovely comment and thanks for the read! I do love to write, and I would like to say I created and devised All these writes I have writ, but I as many Poets and writers have said and feel, is there is a Greater force that inspires us to do the work we feel compelled to do. The Magic comes from those around and above me or so I would be inclined to believe. Thanks once again epigramman Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Hello and thanks matt6v33, I am still waiting for the verdict of the jury. As it is still out on my talent. I do believe God is the one who gives and hands out talents as if they were candy for grand-children, from their Grand parents that spoiled us so. If we are lucky enough to have had at least one such as these. I thank you for saying so though, if enough people keep reassuring we new talents, we just may receive the strength to keep on keeping on. I am glad that you enjoyed the read, Thanks for the comment also matt6v33, Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man
