The Call Of Sirens - Poem by Asma Mejdi

He was promised 'an eternity'
amidst the fairest of fairies,
whom no creature has ever seen.
''Hear them calling...
Your sirens,
fiery and ripen'd,
have been
forever waiting.''
''O beloved,
ain't you coming? ''
What shall I pay?
For HERE is such an abhorrent stay,
Try as may,
THIS I cannot bear,
tell me not to stay.
What's the trick?
That's your ticking golden
Come and get it,
Run brother, run!
You're but a trigger away from heaven.
In a trice,
you shall join your brethern.''
Once a killer,
twice a victim,
he, at last,
met his doom.

    Once a killer,
    twice a victim,
    he, at last,
    met his doom.
    The very clear reality killers fail to see before it's too late.Thanks for sharing
