Hell is paradise

the sound had an eerie finality to it

she wouldn’t make it out of there

plop and no ripples

 

this nightmare is driving me insane

those eyes would never cease to haunt me

the silent plea for help

ignored in the heat of the moment

all for the prize of a mean name tag

and now what

 

sweats pouring down my back in the winter

looking behind me at every instance

heart banging threatening to desert our space

feet restless, lips dry and screams only I can hear

she torments me so

 

I must confess and suffer my hell

it would be a much better hell than this

I should have spoken up

now, hell is paradise
