The Birth Of The Antichrist Poem by Ayman Parray

The Birth Of The Antichrist

Come with me my love into the shadow
We leave behind God's green meadows
We took the forbidden fruit
And the fallen did mock us and hoot
Out divinity we ourselves did loot

Come with me my love into the abyss
We shall dance with the devil
In the deepest darkness we find bliss
Make love to the rhythm of the serpent's hiss
Our lips sealed on Satan's with a kiss

Come with me my love to the field of corpses
We shall cut humanity down with Satan's forces
We have risen to the seat of power
From the skies fire and death will shower
Mankind will fall as we watch from our ivory tower

Come with me my love it is the final hour
Your wretched body has bloomed like death-trap flower
In the name of religion we have created on earth strife
Forgotten are the teachings of Krishna, Muhammad, Moses and Christ
Time for you to give birth to the Antichrist

The world is presented as a hopeless place where devil rules n mankind is indulging in heinous acts at the devil's bidding. This picture sends shivers down the reader's spine. Good work.

Out divinity we ourselves did loot........Mike and i agree: Our :) ivory tower ? n. A place or attitude of retreat, especially preoccupation with lofty, remote, or intellectual considerations rather than practical everyday life. ..................i live in an alabaster tower. what a grisly pair you write about. I'll take it at face value, but i believe mankind has probably had its share of evildoers since the first man began to interact with other men. of course first a man had to interact with a woman........or not? it is all too mysterious for me to try to figure out. bri :) perhaps the line i did not understand the most: And the fallen did mock us and hoot......who are the fallen and why do they hoot? sometimes rhyming works nicely and sometimes i feel it interferes with understanding. another not-understood line: In the name of religion we have created on earth strife .........are we talking about ISIS? ISIS Islamic State of Iraq and Syria? ? ? bri :)

A commentary on the state of snowballing evils in our world today. The antichrist here represents not necessarily the charchter described in any holy book, but rather the momentum building behind the attrocities of our time. Our divinity we ourselves did loot How very true. Humans have no one to blame but themselves for the evils we have created and which threaten to destroy us

The world does seem to have fallen deeper and deeper into an abyss. It often appears as though there are many 'antichrists.' I am so glad to see you posting again my friend. I was just talking about you to a friend the other day. Peace
