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.'
