Mortality’s Debt


Messengers of the ethereal realm
Unleash a mournful dirge
The solemn chimes beseige me
Threatening my existence with an upsurge
Flabbergasted at the abrupt proclamation
I clamber for refuge
No dungeons can conceal
The caverns are illuminated
With a heavenly glow .
My protests are  unheeded
Fate has superseded
The summons are compelling
The debt of mortality is absolved.

      1. It is a great feeling isn’t it? Having talented people see talent in you too. The credit goes both ways 🙂 Your audience motivates you but you are the mind behind the words. I am looking forward to reading more of your work. It is always a delight!
