Twenty-One Lines on Hell

Let me disabuse you
of your notions of hell:
there is no devil
there are no flames;
nor are there throngs of tortured souls,
crying in despair at being deprived
of seeing the face of God
wreathed in celestial clouds.

Hell is a dank ashen room,
completely silent
but for the splash of your own tears
on an empty table,
barred windows promising
a life of beauty, love and joy.
But alas, there is no doorway.
You can look but never own it.

That, my friends, is hell.
I have no fear of death.
I have no fear of hell.
For I inhabit death in life
and hell is here on earth.
