DAMNATION...

Love was cast aside,
grief and shame within me reside
 Words I've spoken deeds I've done
turning my face away from the son
 Choices I made decision was mine
the hand of the devil or a love left behind
 pain unbearable soul to trade
deal is struck, bargain paid
 Demons crawling in my skin, soul once pure
now bathed in sin
 Echos of their laughter, forever in my mind
images of a life now left behind
 Drowning in my screams, denial of my dreams
mind of confusion before my eyes just
lies and illusion
 Words not said, thoughts unspoken
redemption denied will is broken,
 Flames await, the fiery gate
sumbols, signs, becon calling
forever screaming, forever falling....

Wow, this is really deep! Nicely written and flowed well. I was gonna pick out a specific favorite line, but I liked too many of them very much!

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
