    Sold Out


Beneath the gate of doom;
Through the portal to the land of pain.
My passage paved between the plains of fate.

No stratosphere above.
Nothing of the stars.
The void obscured by murk as thick as oil.

My perceptions assaulted
By the stink and the howls.
I cowered at the maw of Abaddon.

Hordes of cursed spirits
Sprinting left and right
Never a moment of respite.

Through streaks
And clots of blood
I glimpsed the whites of eyes
And tongues in mouths ajar
In frenzied screams.

The chase was made
By swarms of angry vespids;
Stings and jaws stained claret.

The sap that oozed
From penetrated skin
Fell heavy to the ground
Nectar to sate
The pulsing mass
Of ravenous worms
With gaping gullets.

Feeding frenzy.

Eternal torment in the Valley of Insects
Blood on the shores of Acheron.

The suffering beneath, I feared,
Would drive my soul to crave
That I could be the fare of wasps and worms.
