The Judgment Day - a Poem

Updated on April 2, 2014

Judgment Day

Source

The day is sweltering, angry clouds rolling

There is bright light on half of the land

The other half…dim and thick, thundering

I’m losing my way, road continue to expand.


Faces, faces, so many faces I clearly see

Not familiar of any, but new; where am I?

I sit, wait in confusion, then fell on my knee

As God strikes a finger to a screen, they all cry.


A petal plucked by fear is painful

I’m no more pretty petal for sure

Soaking, shivering, looking for a rule

No sign, no telling, so unsure.


Then I see a girl out in the far light

Submissive arms spread like wings

Facing the heavens, she looks so bright

Upon her head, crystal water streams.


A visible angel white holds a bucket

Of water holy, sacred, glorifying

Again, bless a boy with his mom’s locket

Like an innocent child in the rain.


Source


Minutes later, slippers on my feet gone

Stepping into a shitty, muddy floor

Nothing more, dress splattered, done

A weeping angel guided me towards a door.


I called a friend who I see and recognize

A friend for years, but chooses to ignore

She never seem to hear me nor realize

Just scaling fishes; breathing, choking odour.


Not for long I find myself back to her

Now sharing the filthiest rocky table

Deaf and mute she acts, I cannot decipher

Fishes I scale too, no exemption to unable.


Our baskets we take, o’er heads and shoulders

Still darkness creeping within the flaring heat

Filling ‘em with fishes heavy as boulders

Scraping wounds, bruises, it’s no heroic feat.


Roads of neon charcoals, red and flaming

Walking bare feet, flaring pieces cling to our skins

No ashes gray or white, all hell is blazing

Stops a tear from falling to pay for our sins.


With bare hands we gather, grimacing in pain.

Alas, Satan’s servant rings the bell echoing screams

Thinking there is a time for break in this domain

Grimly it isn’t; but glad JUDGMENT DAY was in my dreams.

      Thank you Michelle! This one generated a lot of fear...I had another nightmare that I heard myself scream and felt my kicks. I was crying (real tears) and too scared to go back to sleep. My nightmare was about people I don't know and chasing me with dead chickens and dead birds. I got hit a couple of times...it was very scary! I have Alektorophobia.

      Dear friend, I am glad you survived the wrath of Sandy that you and your furry balls are all okay. How is the lake shore? Hope Sandy didn't swipe parts of the shore's beauty. The shore should remain sandy! And as you are saying...you are back from your daily walk around the bay, that sounds good though the temp today is freezin'; only snow is missin'.

      The music you're listening is perfect for the evening and the chills of the night.

      I am ready now to rest from hubbing tonight and open my ghost book and hoping to finish the pages with ease. I pray later that no nightmarish dreams will show up from it, or else, my chills of the night will be different, lol. Cold as it is already tonight, I don't need another kind of chill later...

      Goodnight, epi! 5:46 pm and 3 degrees out. I didn't turn on our heat yet.

      ...well, lol, I always did love that word 'shitty' ....for such a non-descript word it says so much as an adjective - lol -

      but I even love your dream poetry, Lady Tess, you are perhaps the most sublime poetic priestess that I know of.

      Your words almost move me as a reader and motivate me as a writer.

      Just back from my daily walk around the bay of the lake and as you know with the time change - in another half hour now - at lake erie time 4:54pm it will be dark but I am never in the dark at your hallowed hubspace where there is nothing but the shining light of a very talented writer and photographer.

      Currently listening with my tea to Kathleen Battle and Jean Pierre Rampal on flute - now that is sublime - also has recordings with Christopher Parkening on classical guitar and Wynton Marsalis on trumpet - so lovely

      and sending good wishes to you, yes I survived the wrath of Sandy and so did my cats although they were not thinking about it as we were - their priorities were in the food dish.

      Thank you so much dear Faith Reaper. It would be a great pleasure to follow through meanings in repeat happenings especially if dreams and/or visions are about numbers! Must buy lotto right away, lol!

      Dearest Tess -

      I do not believe there is one person who would even think you are in any way, shape or form, those things you have mentiioned dear one. Dreams and/or visions are very significant, especially if you know in your heart you are to follow through with them and they really mean something.

      You know what is what in your life; I have no doubt about that at all!!!

      In His Love Always, Faith Reaper

      Hi Gypsy! It was and I was scared as hell! What the hell? I felt I was down there, seemed so real and the tiptoeing on burning charcoals everywhere was a pain I couldn't imagine. I didn't have that strength and courage in me to walk on fire with ease, well anyways, there is NO comfort in that place. I could describe how Hell looked like, but it will just make my poem longer. I don't think someone like Faith Reaper would like to read. I thought of her when I was going through looking for the right pictures to use for this hub. I didn't want the photos to appear too evil. Something crawled up to my neck that night just by browsing and encountering "ugly and dark" photos on Google. I heed to the interpretation to this dream...

      Thank you Gypsy Rose! May you have pleasant dreams...

      Hello Faith Reaper,

      No worries. We are all caught up with priorities sometimes. I'm just exactly the same, but trying :)

      I just looked up to the meanings and the significance of the elements that comprised a frightening dream. I may be in a situation of retreating to certain aspects in my life that I wasn't transparently aware of. The interpretation of my dream has made it seem valuable for me to follow through. Anyone can call me gullible or an easy believer or naive, but I am open to possibilities especially if they mean something.

      The Judgement Day dream-poem is a window for me.

      Thank you dear Faith Reaper!

      Hi girishpuri! I don't know still how I came to a dream like this, but let me search the meanings quickly...

      Oh boy, here is what I found on the nightmarish side from the dream:

      Fish - The fish is also an ancient symbol of Christianity and Christian beliefs. It may also imply a slippery or elusive situation. Perhaps your dream could be telling you that "there are plenty of other fish in the sea", with regards to some relationship issue. To see a dead fish signifies disappointment and loss of power/wealth.

      Walking on Burning Coal - To dream that you or someone is walking on coals indicates that you will overcome adversity. Nothing is impossible if you put your mind to it.

      Hell - To dream of hell suggests that you are suffering from a seemingly inescapable situation. You may have placed your decision or course of action into someone else's hand. Alternatively, you may be possessing a guilty conscious, some inner fears or repressed negative feelings. It is time to quit punishing yourself and take it easy for awhile.

      (Weeping) Angel - To see angels in your dream symbolize goodness, purity, protection, comfort and consolation. Pay careful attention to the message that the angels are trying to convey.

      Since, I was guided by a weeping angel I would take this alternative meaning as- it signifies an unusual disturbance in your soul. Angels may appear in your dream as a result of your wicked and mean-hearted activities.

      An Old Friend - To see friends from your past in your dream points to your desire to reconnect with a part of yourself that you have lost touch with.

      The Big Bell - To hear a bell in your dream represents a warning or a call to order. The ringing of the bell signals the beginning of something new. It may also be a way for your subconscious to prepare you for whatever is happening next.

      Sad, isn't it? and thank you girishpuri for dropping by. :)

      Thank you Jerry. It's nice to see you. I believe in it too. There could be not just a set of punishments, but perhaps tons of it with endless suffering.

      Yes, I'm glad it was just a dream, teaches. I can't even tell my friend that she was in hell before me, lol. She is also one of my best friends. Gosh, it's so weird and scary; and there are NO possibilities of greetings, a wave, a smile and of friendship in the pit. Thank you teaches. Have a good day!

      Hi Debbie! Miss you and I have not taken a chance to drop by your new writings. Sometimes, we can't just fulfill and glide through the many hubbers we want to visit. Will be visiting you soon here...

      Thank you for checking on this dream-poem. It was kind of a nightmare; glad I awoke without having my break down there or else it would be different.

      There are no words to tell of your pure brilliance in writing such poetry as this dear one. This is beyond stunningly beautiful on so many levels and does really stir one deep into one's soul. Very thought provoking!

      Love all the vivid imagery and videos . . . also perfect. Yes, JUDGEMENT DAY, no doubt will one day not be a dream . . .
