Life Walks On A Tight Rope

Life Walks On A Tight Rope

A Poem by Stephen

Life is a fickle thing

Night's thoughts, brings
Horror's songs, sings
of Death's bell, it's rings
the terrible things he brings, 
the thoughts of that night, it seems......
a phantasm 

A tight rope, our life walks
over the endless darkened chasm
an imbalanced move, life balks
the chasm no longer a phantasm

My feet on the ledge of .......
my last breath!
My soul, on the edge of .......
Eternity's death! 

What lies in the darkened chasm?
I cannot fathom
only heard, is the chasm's phantasm

In the darkness, what lurks, 
waiting to consume my soul?
the fire, fueled by sinful works
for the sin is it's coal, 
that fuels the fire for the soul
for the soul must pay it's toll!

From this dream I awake!
soaked with sweat, from the Dream's hell
leaving my body to shake!
leaving the stench, soul's burning smell

Our feet on the ledge of .....
our last breath!
our soul on the edge of .....
Eternity's death!
