Dark Betrayal - Poem by Jas Andrada
Around, all around, the dark memories gather.
My dread grows as the stroke of death falls against my heart.
It crushes me, and darkly my
to the thirsty earth.
In unholy terror I hang my head
while Death's shadow follows.
Now alone, my blood falls upon blind eyes.
This is hell
Slender beams of illumination enter
this darkened prison as I kneel,
always in pain, always fearful,
Tortured forms wrought in panes of glass loom as
dust dances in the air,
forming an image in my mind,
penetrating my darkened soul.
Blood on a deathless face.
I raise my head, now crying out for
this uncaring Heaven.
the night falls with a silent sigh, lost are we.
the god for which you sacrifice yourself
flares once, then dies,
crushed by guilt.
all hope must die.
your passion throbs no more.
how could you fail to believe?
our dark emotions surround us, crying,
save us from ourselves.
