The Way To Hell

The Way To Hell

A Poem by Stephen
"

The "World" the harlot, that leads to hell

"
In the dark, fog filled night
the sun's light, now buried
I visit, to know the dead's plight
and to where they were ferried

The lifeless graveyard, I walked
by death,inhabitants marred
engraved, their life's poem
their tombstone, their bard 

through dense fog, I walked
my vision impaired
over the dead, dirt caulked
the same end they shared

for death took all
not a one he spared
he brings all under his thrall
some unprepared

such a bard, I stumbled across
a story he had to tell
concerning the man, below the cross
who road the ferry to Hell

the bard began the tale
the poem he recited
hearing the poem made me wail
for in the same things I delighted

Spoken by the bard
is the following tale:

"here, ******** lies
 beneath this very stone
 of him I will apprise 
 why in Hell, he was thrown
 
 For he kissed the seductive lips 
 of the harlot, the "World"
 ravished in her temporary love
 his soul in her bosom, furled 

 Her end was bitter as wormwood,
 sharp as a two-edged sword
 Her feet took him down to death
 her steps took hold on hell. 

 here, ********* lies,
 beneath this very stone
 listen, you'll hear his cries
 in hell where he was thrown"

The bard finished the tale
my face becoming pale, 
on my knees I fell
as the sun removed the veil
for the name I saw, 
of the one led to hell!

My..name..it revealed.

I continued to wail!!!!

To be continued.........

Unfortunately our souls will continue just apart from God if we refuse Christ redeeming blood

Thanks again for reading. I am glad that you enjoyed it
Oh how I do love this. Stories of souls being ferried to hell is always a treat.
I must say, the rhythm of this poem is pleasing and easy to follow. You use all the right words, though they put the reader in a different time.
There are a itsy bitsy amount of awkward word placement, that could be typos. Will love to read the next part!

What I really love about your poems that they have a signature style that tells the reader that you're the one who wrote it. This piece is extraordinary. I love the way you choose the words, sentences and rhyme it perfectly. This is amazing, thanks for sharing.

You are most welcome, my friend
The fog and the setting here reminded me of the poem "The fog "by W.H Davies... I have told you i guess that you have remarkably nice quality to tell tales in poem.This is a very unique trait.To grab the reader in is the very quality of the poet. i liked the personification of world... yes we drown in her charms until we realise we are in death bed.... but its ohhh too late! The end just took me by surprise . Well it could have been anybody's name out here.We all have sinned and kissed the seductive lips of World.. A nice treat :)*takecare*
