Ring Of Fire

Fractal%20picture%20free%20image%20wallpaper%20art%20definition%20stock%20design%20fire%20ring%20texture_800

Borne within is the power to burn

A blistering razor wire lies in wait

For the ill-fated who dare oppose

Or the hatefully mindless aggressor

 

Step lightly where only Angels dared tread

Mindful of those who have gone before

Leave no trace of your undesired presence

Knowing a ripple causes permanent waves

 

Never look back at the river of flames

As the ferryman will wait for eternity

To carry you quickly and excruciatingly

Farther away from Dante’s doorway

 

Beware the hungry hounds at the gate

Held in molten chains about to break

Images of Hellfire inside ravenous eyes

Chops licked in such deadly anticipation

 

Once again I caution the boldly unaware

To seek absolution for their atrocities

The “Man In Black” welcomes with open arms

All who are willing to gamble with their soul

  1. I love this one. A “razor wire shrine.” It’s almost like a companion piece (the male perspective) to the song Building a Mystery by Sarah McLachlan.
