  Cover Issue 11 THE SINISTER TRAIN

by ANTHONY CROWLEY

Strapped into a journey

The darkest of pleasures and dreams

The wheels are in motion,

A tormented twisted departing

On this passage of fire and terror

no retreat to an unknown heaven

Heading for the devils causeway

An escape, a nightmarish haven


The rail tracks ablaze

From the deepened hallowed earth

Locomotive of infinity,

Along this visionary turf

The lucid sky crumbles with clouds of forbidden grey

No rest for the wicked,

Sinners will prey

Conductor of insanity

Passenger aborted, Lucifer rising


Stairway of dreamscapes

Forever in my stare

Prophecy of the future

Amongst the sinister lair

Destination of blasphemy

Reaching the Seventh gate


Stepping off the red masked train

A different world

Hell awaits.
