Passover

Passover

A Poem by Bipolarbear.979
"

Religious poetry

"
With the door latched 
And windows shut tight 
The glow of the night torch 
Casting an orange halo 
In the cool, light mist 
The dark vapor creeps 
Through the heavy silence 
Pierced with the screams 
Of anguished mothers 
In houses enveloped with tears 
The dark vapor still glides 
Uncaring through the streets 
The first-borns 
First no longer 
With staff in hand 
And sandals on feet 
Unleavened bread and bitter herbs 
With the slaughtered lamb 
Its blood on the door frames 
A sign to keep this Plague at bay 
Passed over from this death sentence
