A Forsaken Coffer

Updated on March 28, 2017

A Foresaken Coffer | Source

Sterile, infinite, expanse,

Lifeless abode

Engulfed by fetid air

a rancid stench

of ancient annihilation,

Prominent, expectant.

Parched of all plasmic cartilage

a scavenged chasm

Harvested; swarmed; stripped raw

to naked repugnance,

Unfathomable depression.

Human scaffolding,



Masquerading mangled clumps,

Amalgamated amidst

Crude crawling earth

Impregnated debris:

Ashen ossified matter


a suppressed desolate abyss

Obliterated and shrouded.

Monstrous deprivation,

Piteous mortifying catacomb,

An eternal macabre crater,

Unredeemed nomadic marrow,

Eradicated to unknown existence.

Candelstine perpetual vacuum

of mass affliction.

A desolate desert

A forlorn void

Unparalleled demonic wraith

Dormant mid the charcoal fragments

of extinction

Contrived by mortals

Condemned by the mortified

A foresaken coffer...

Writer's Note

Death is our equal companion no matter how great we are. And the great who take lives be it in solitude or masses will also be no more than ossified matter in their eventuality. Whether God in some form or other exists is a wonder but the devil for sure is alive and well amongst us.

      The end of the world will certainly be a lifeless abode, your thoughts are certainly very interesting and actually very accurate too. Thanks for that Peggy.

      A peaceful world would be something to write about. Perhaps one day there will be inspiration to do just that. We can hope.

      Your poem struck me as the end of the world driven by the worst instincts of man. Yes...the devil is surely alive. A peaceful world seems like a distant dream unfortunately.
