Begone ye screams of silence, harbingers of pain
Cloaked in isolation, you mock in harsh disdain
My soul is torn asunder, I curse you God of Hell
As you pierced my tortured soul, what horrors I befell
You spoke of quiet solitude, to tempt me to your lair
Then lanced me in my troubled heart, to depths of dark despair
Nemesis, I beg of thee, rise up in righteous ire
Protect be from Tisiphone, from Hell's eternal fire
With all my voice I scream to you, protect me from the night
Alas, in forlorn desperation, I journey to the light
Banished to mind's coventry, I heed the demon's call
Beckoned by the silent screams, I enter Dante's Hall
Drawn into the vortex, I hope and pray to find
Total absolution, illusions of the mind?
Drowning in disharmony, upon a tranquil sea
Adrift upon the River Styx, am blind but yet I see
Bowing to Mephistopheles, as Faust I sell my soul
Unto the Fallen Angels, at last I cede control
On bended knee I enter, the world of waking dreams
Final absolution, farewell to silent screams.

An incredibly powerful poem, not to mention a magnificent use of the English language. A pleasure watching you work, sir.

Wonderfully crafted piece of Darkness, a triumph for the Night.

I am at a loss for words. Powerful? Terrifying? Brilliant? All those, and more.
