Journal Entry: Redemption

Return to The Dante Dreams Project

This poet fears the Fallen Angel
the sum of all dreads
whose presence has dogged
his every step
through the reds and crags
of hell.

Then the voice of finality
a bell for the final toll:

The path of your nightmares
has led to Satan, as sure
as the sword of Abraham.
The three-headed beast awaits,
your salvation a one-word key
unspoken throughout your dreams
or written in these lines.
Once there you must kneel
to write that word
or
        stay
                for
                        eternity.
