The Fire Garden…

The garden of fire…
Burning so very bright…

Trees are all ablaze…
So close to midnight…

Searching for something…
Within those flames…

Where demons dance…
And confusion reigns…

Following the feelings…
Wherever they may lead…

Tinged with a curiosity…
Driven by an urgent need…

To find some inner peace…
A tiny speck of clarity…

In the midst of the chaos…
Under a spell of insanity…

That can never be broken…
And won’t seem to abate…

Always full steam ahead…
Like a train that won’t wait…

Or provide any respite…
Nor give time to think…

As in the heat of this battle…
Broken black hearts sink…

And retreat into shadows…
Down Hell’s dimly lit paths…

Where people talk in circles…
As time silps through the hourglass…

Where all the rules get broken…
And the sinners live in fear…

Every minute of their lives…
And every passing year…

Never loving anything…
Living without any hope…

In a garden of pure temptation…
They walk a thin tightrope…

Praying they don’t fall…
Desperate they don’t fail…

And the demons of darkness…
Will not always fucking prevail…

Hands tied and bound…

Tight behind his back…

He never saw it coming…

Such a stealthy attack…

They came out of nowhere…

Taking him by surprise…

Now they simply stand there…

Accusing him of lies…

He’s tied on to a post…

Built upon branches from trees…

And the scent filling his nose…

Is petroleum on the breeze…

Coming under interrogation…

In this kangaroo court…

There is no judge or jury…

There’ll be no afterthought…

Each refusal to answer…

Brings the ending nearer…

He’s trying to be strong…

Yet inside he’s full of fear…

As the baying pack mentality…

Want his blood to be spilled…

And a swift conclusion…

That will see him killed…

Sending out a message…

To their perceived enemies…

That they are in charge…

In order that nobody sees…

Any chink of weakness…

Within their armoury…

Because swift retribution…

Is what this will be…

But he stands strong…

In the face of their hatred…

Knowing that his life…

Will soon be terminated…

And his soul will ascend…

Wearing a fallen heroes crown…

As the strike of just one match…

Begins the final countdown…
