Where Nightmares Collide

By Stormcomin

In the bowels of pain, where angels have cried
Where the howling of demons harmoniously chide
And pleas of forgiveness, forever denied
For torturous memories, one has to abide

This is the dreamscape...
A dowry of sin
This is the prison where nightmares begin

In this cavernous Hell, created in mind
Where the angels lie hopeless, abused and maligned
Their prayers unanswered, forever entwined
In maddening echoes of things far behind

This is the shadow...
Cast endless and cold
This is the darkness where nightmares unfold

In this feverish void, where angels are slain
Where the torments rip through a subliminal domain
And demons meander, forever insane
With thunderous whispers so loud and profane

This is the anger...
That boils inside
This is the fury where nightmares collide

    truedark, lyrically, majestically excellent. I can't compliment your command of metre/rhyme/cadence enough - you weave it perfectly every time.
