Caves Of Hell - Poem by krazy k

Caves of Hell

I have been deceased
For a long time past
In the place I have been
There aren’t trees or grass
Just walking skeletons
Remnants of the living
There is no happiness
No joy, dread, or fear
Just evil thoughts
Sick twisted minds
Not moving forward
Not moving behind
The world just stands still
If you could call this a world
The souls just wander
With nowhere to go
There is no fire
There is no snow
Just stone gray walls
And moisture abound
All day long we’re lost
Never found
We just scratch at the walls
We claw the darkness
Until our fingers are numb
Our screams echo
Off the walls and the floors
This place is desolate
No windows or doors
Hearts filled with anguish
Tear out of our chests
No way out
Don’t know how we got in
Our sins in our life
Not enough to deserve this
A torrent of pain
Rips the flesh off our bones
All that’s left is brittle
A skeleton
A walking reminder
Of times in our past
With no light to brighten
Our eyes become black
Our lips like rose petals
Dead in the past
The smell of our skin
As it rots on the floor
Wafts through the airless room
Like the decay in our heads
We have no brain left
All is gray matter
Nothing is colorful
Nothing is white
Just surrounded by darkness
Like it’s always night
We constantly search
For an exit or hope
But we find nothing
Like looking through smoke
The truth and the lies
Of words said when alive
All burn the same
In the darkness of this place
Nobody cares
About the good deeds you did
Or about all the times
You played catch with your kid
Down in this crevice
You’re grouped all the same
Murderers and rapists
Sane and insane
I lay on the floor
Skull in bony arms
Pondering what I did
To deserve such a torment
The only thing we ever hear
Are the moans and groans
Of those that have fallen
Satan himself is nowhere near
For even this place
Is too dark for him
We’ve walked for centuries
With no end in sight
Wondering why
We are caged inside
But all we find
Is more of the same
Not knowing appearance
Or even our names
It doesn’t matter here
There’s nothing do discuss
Nothing to do but wander
And try to find the end
Of the sorrowful caves of hell.
