Heaven and Hell In Collusion

Heaven and Hell in Collusion

 

She dropped the roses,

looked around the room

as the dead rested in peaceful poses,

her eyes traced the words in the Bible,

and she continued to read,

her hands covered in blood

as she continued to bleed,

the wounds were fresh,

as a chill raked her flesh,

humanity would hide,

as Mother Mary cried,

the Cross hung in a huge space,

Jesus’s head tiled to one side,

an odd vibration was felt all over the place,

and a sadness she saw in his face,

angels were whispering in her ear,

telling her not to worry,

there was nothing to fear,

but the Devil entered like an illusion,

Heaven and Hell in collusion,

then the church spirits scowled at the demonic intrusion,

God’s son’s survival had failed,

his resurrection, trailed,

and the corpse,

on a Cross, nailed.

How very true, faithful and awesome Frank. That is what I call being faithful and loving. That really must have taken some thought. I voted it up and pinned it.

You are so consistently good. I didn't see this earlier. The rhythm is lyrical and, of course, the poem is filled with enough imagery to make you see the scene too vividly for comfort.
