The other side…...

...................carry on Tuesday

His legs wander deep unto the night,
The night embraced by the moonlight
He has to keep his steps in careful stride
Along the ravine by the dungeon
A fall could be his last.
His stroll brings him to a halt
When suddenly he sees a door
With silvery lines and gold coating
His hands draw the temptation closer.

Knocking on the moonlit door
Saturated with impish delight
The traveler muttered inaudibly
At the long moment of impatient wait.
Images around appears eerily wild
Casting stance of unimaginable fear,
His voice resonates in tears
"Is there anybody there?"

In creepy voice the sky speaks to him
Gurgling fear reverberates across sky
Regurgitating a dark secret immersed in history
Known only to the keeper of eternity.

Knocking on the moonlit door, once again
"Is there anybody there?" said the Traveler
A long pause ensues
And a voice speaks loud,
“Yes, I am here, the keeper of eternity.
Only the dead knocks at this door,
to know their fate from now onwards”.

  2. Quite mysterious, and a bit terrifying, Cyclop

    Life after death -- an eerie idea -- life is so tempting at times...we think of life after death,

    I have taken out the other part of the comment, Cyclopt ..because it might be read it in a wrong light by some other...those instances are often pointers I take for myself...Not all would necessarily take it so :)

    wishes,
