 Silver lace intertwined,

Crisscrosses the barriers


of the ecclesiastical mind.


Fraught with the perils unknown


of a prophets false time.


 


Ancient charts, new worlds


Black angels with golden curls


Directing still the lost visions


of the city of Dis’s clamoring minions.


 


Lifting on high the banner of death,


They steal the souls of a beggar’s bread.


While the shades of torment seek their Shiloh.


 


For nothing remains of the now silent prophet


and many no longer plea nor lift up their head


For they realize again and again and again,


That from this place, filled with angst and disgrace


they shall never part nor flee.

A well-written piece, Allen. There's truth in this too -

"For they realize again and again and again,
That from this place, filled with angst and disgrace
they shall never part nor flee."

A thought-provoking write indeed!

May Lu a.k.a. Sandie Angel :o)
