The Streets of Pain

Streets of Pain
A Dream of an Afternoon Walk in the Land of Torment and Turmoil
A Chōka Poem about the Land of Torment and Turmoil

Dessicated earth
Burning my feet as I pace


Winds that burn my skin
My sight blurred by a mirage


The scent of decay
I’m breathing difficultly


Eyes of the unseen
Watching, waiting for the kill


As if I am stalked
Like prey to a predator


Sorrow and torment
Screams of terror and anguish


From the horizon
A sea of red-hot liquid


What sea winds carries
Wails from the souls of the damned
Pain, gnashing of teeth


Suffering, Fire, and Turmoil
Will this be my future too?


It's fun here! Just like disneyland!
