A NIght In Hell

A NIght In Hell

A Poem by Danny J.H.

a poem about the dreams of the otherworld


A Night In Hell


The darkness strokes my restless face

The cold air penetrates my skin

My mind is off in another place

Where I ponder dreams akin


My prophecies and nightmares

Greet me with a smile

Evil doings and blank stares

Stretch mile after mile


No wind nor stars are here tonight

In my dreamy hell

Only monsters walk in sight

Not a soul I tell


I am taken to manor

One-thousand chambers high

Abode of awful grandeur

Satan’s palace in the sky


My thoughts have turned against me

Treat me they shan’t well

I have tried and cannot flee

From this haunted hell


We walk down many hallways

My evil thoughts and I

We climb up many stairways

Closer to the sky

I finally meet a dwelling

Who’s doors shut out the days

I confess I shan’t be telling

But I couldn’t help but gaze


Satan sat upon his throne

And looked right back at me

I knew right then when his eyes shone

That I would never be free


So Satan rose up from his chair

And uttered an evil hiss

He ordered me into his lair

To face my final bliss


Around my heart I felt his hands

Begin to squeeze and creep

But in another farther land

I woke up from my sleep
