  • Hell's Gold

    Hell’s demon awakens, eyes turned to gold
    Wrinkled skin sags, but he’s not that old
    He lies between sheets, alone in the bed
    Waiting in silence until, at last, he is dead
    The face of pure evil, she’s seen him before
    While they were fighting, when they were at war
    And now that it’s over, and her side has won
    She can see the destruction, see the things that she’s done
    No, she isn’t proud, but he’ll soon be dead
    The swift-acting plague her side had to send
    Demons can’t survive the love of the skies
    But, why then, why did this sight make her cry?
    She was an angel of God, he was the scourge of the Earth
    The scum of the dirt, of no value or worth
    A terrible man who’d done terrible things
    But why, then, did his death make her heart sting?
    There isn’t a place for demons up here
    Hell only knows how to torture and fear
    But Earth needs to be loved, to be nourished and grow
    With the light sent from heaven, an ethereal glow
    Yet she sits beside him, and she takes his hand
    But he doesn’t hear her, his mind’s far from this land
    She looks at his eyes, the sickening whites
    The pupils constricted, as if he’s seen the light
    And there, while she lingers, his last breath escapes
    And Hell’s demon pays for his final mistake
    All transgressions forgotten, now he’s just a shell
    And now that’s she’s seen him, she is as well
