Nine layers of Hell

   hath we wallowed

Buried and burned

   frozen by fires ice

and the hands of insubstantial lovers.

Nine layers of Hell

   and now this –

The creature the woman brought.

Death on four legs

   devours the murders on two.

Our small peace

   Penance, discipline and shame,

cowed by the Maw –

   the mouth of the daemon below.

Nights alive, evil and want.

Insistent desire barren of regret –

   it slinks behind, dives from above – 

Ends us,

   robs us of the Forgiveness,

      offers Nothing but pain

         and the Void.
