Clenching My Eyes

Such a beautiful shield of ignorance.

The finest sense abolished with glee.

I clench my eyes in fear.

To the truth, forever free.

Though, I'm the final man alive.

And I smell the aftermath, indeed.

I hear the echoes from the sea.

But these, I'll never have to see.

A voice is chanting violent verses.

Venom taints it's breath.

Apocalyptic innards churning.

Putridity, all that's left.

The voice warps into a twisted roar.

And to a common language, it shifted:

'Cowardly fool, how dare you defy me?

I demand that your veil be lifted!

I know that you fear the dark voice that you hear.

And the stench of the death in the air.

But open your eyes, stop believing your lies.

And I promise your life will be spared.'

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
