|The subject is love, and the power of love... the poetry is in the power and to understand this poem one should open his mind to the the realm of dreams within which anything occurs, prevails, or dominates.|
THE HARVESTER PART 1: END OF INNOCENCE The clock strikes twelve and moon drops burst, Out yonder from their hiding place, Each breath suffocates, reason tends to fly away, This life the harvester forsakes, Been cheated of youth, only anger and misery, Every lie he is convinced as the truth. The harvester, receiver of pain, Let the punishment begin... A beautiful girl of fifteen walks the field, Reflecting innocence, a brother the only shield, Everyday the devils wait, how much longer To feed on the bait, the beauty and the body Keep incrementing the hunger And one fateful night the thread severs. Hungry pleasure seekers, feeding off the weaker, Lunacy breeding within, howl at the door, ‘Drink up, shoot in, distribute the pain, Don't bother their loss, enjoy our gain.' ‘What you say are forgotten thoughts of yesterday, How much can your money buy? It is beyond your control to rule our fate, If life becomes a shame we will just slit and die.' Laughing and talking the language of the mad, The harvester realized the situation he had, Hungry and sore, no resistance to pour, Outnumbered and beaten he was tied to the door, The poor sister was striped of her pride, And the mother was burned alive, The harvester was left scarred all over, wounds deep and neat, And this slaughter to them smelled so sweet. As the harvester sits in a smoke filled room, The night about to end, everyone acting strange, A helping hand none ready to lend, Frozen emotions and words like ice, no tears cried, Hours of wait, at last courtesy arrives Someone helps him come undone, The harvester turns his face away from the questions, The death is visible on the surface, And the screams are audible underneath, A sullen glance of what's left, A last look over the theft, And the final rituals are performed, The straw hut of the harvester is burned. The death results in the loss of reason in the head, ‘Revenge now is sought even if blood is shed, I'll battle constantly and kill all who conspired, Split each to the bone and make the fall, Take my time and subdue all.' PART 2: SATAN ARRIVES The sun has gone down, the lamp is whining, The darkness is now taunting, ‘Oh lord! The slaughter blended with carnage has torn me apart, I have lost the smile I carried in my heart, When I served everyone was nice, It's now time to kill, make them pay the price, So grant me thy powers so I can prove my bravery, I pray thee for thy mercy.' A clap of thunder breaks the silence, Satan arrives and the harvester is audience, ‘I am evil, yes I am, But lord won't help you, only I can, Your desire to avenge thyself is what I see, I'll make you a warlock if you agree to serve me, No one will dare to look or glance your way, Your reputation will go before your stay, Like a spirit you'll disappear at will, Many will claim of things but none will see you kill.' ‘My soul is longing for and I await my revenge, I want the times to come when souls are heard, And I never want these wicked skies to get cleared.' ‘You are mine...' Walking by the night the harvester arrives at the gates, A long black coat covers the body, hands shielded with blades, All the bats start to leave the trees, they're joining the call, This one satanic hell preacher heads for the hall, Using demon eyes he erases all that comes his way, The harvester now is the predator and the residents are prey, With evil glee and pride he starts the sacrifice, All the followers carouse with blood stained wings, Every mortal is slewed with single Click here to read the rest of this story (56 more lines)
