Judgment Day

by Bill Turner   Dec 22, 2008


Spirit flying at the sound of a sigh
Heart lifting a burden carried for life
Season bringing guilt for darkness done
Best intentions bringing evil in the night
Noose...hood...trap door swinging out of sight
Sometimes a parking ticket pushes you to the edge
Other times the sound of life failing follows you
Peering over your shoulder...was it right?
Duty...or pleasure taken...maybe both...
That will wake you from a sound sleep
Cold sweat clinging to your brow
Our demons meet us when we are weak
Catching us in our sleep...watching for the moment
Unfolding fact and fiction in our mind
Forcing us to not be blind
Evil is as evil does...or is it the intention...
Do evil deeds lose their evil if the cause is just?
Judgment day will tell us all...slowly...one at a time

    I got chills when I was reading this piece.

    Cold sweat clinging to your brow
    Our demons meet us when we are weak
    Catching us in our sleep...watching for the moment
    Unfolding fact and fiction in our mind
    Forcing us to not be blind

    Sometimes I wonder if the bad things that happen to us in life are for something we did wrong....Like Hell on Earth...this is a very deep and intense poem.
    Excellent job!
    Take care my friend.
    Love Cindy

    Is that really what you believe?

    Evil changes form.
    Judgment isn't more than an idea. It's not going to change anything.

    This was well written.
