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.'
