Spiritual Darkness

Standing at the gates
Of my outmost desire
My inner self waits
Restless as fire

How long ago was it
Since I have been standing
I remember a kid
Waiting while aging

Time passes by
And what do we do
Standing 'till we die
Where to go to

I look back
All the others in line
Breathing in their neck
Urging to climb

I look ahead
Beyond the ivory barrier
A demon of the dead
Guarding the interior

I glance at the steps
Made by my predecessor
The increasing gaps
Running from the predator

He did not make it
And neither will I
Look at him sit
How long 'till I die

Soon the hunt will come
A prey by my own fault
Decisions there were some
Leading my assault

It is an uphill slope
I always avoid
Immanent hope
But somewhere annoyed

Given I do succeed
If ever in my heart
Hope fills the need
To surpass my guard

Impatient my thoughts
Travel the astral plane
Kissing all the rods
Destination to remain

In vision I proceed
Still the fence withholds
The bars seem to feed
As my mind unfolds

From gates of torment
To hungry lies
Even at this moment
Evading where it flies

A scream from behind
Someone gone astray
Soon the soul will bind
As Earth takes its way

Slowly it draws near
Narrowing our distance
Growing in fear
Passing the entrance
