Welcome to Hell

By Aarron Mondello


The heat is building past the boiling point
Melting like ice every bone and every joint
Skin is sloughing slowly off my charred skeleton
Caught in a blast that ripped the land apart, a megaton
My eyes are melting into jelly that dribbles down my cheeks
Before my sense of smell is gone I catch my burning reek
I hear tortured screams as others burn around me everywhere
Before I die, for just a moment, I think how is this fair?
Then a light so very bright burns into my ruptured eyes
I look and see on many faces an expression of surprise
We are not dead, in fact it seems we are all okay
I do not understand what’s the point of this horror game
Then booms a voice all around and drives us to our knees
“Welcome to Hell, line at the gate, and collect your wristbands please.”
