house of sin continued

A grand old mansion on a hill

The stately manor stands there still

In the darkness of the night

Throughout the window came a light

On the veranda I did creep

To glowing window for a peek

To filthy pane I pressed my face

To peer beyond the curtain lace

Around the great room my eyes did roam

The king of sinners on his throne

All his minions and demons there

Dancing at this banquet fair

Oh the horror there I spied

In this place where goodness died

In my fright I turned to leave

But felt a hand upon my sleeve

Oh the touch was dead and cold

I shuttered to my very soul

The breath of death was on my face

I could not leave this evil place

My lord he said invites you in

Ah…welcome to the house of sin

Enter through the one way door

For you may leave here…. Nevermore!


His icy grip upon my sleeve

I wanted to, but could not leave

My life was over, I knew for sure

As we entered through the one way door

The stench was foul, the smell of death

I couldn’t breathe I held my breath 

The minions laughed the demons wailed

I tried to break his grip, but failed

He threw me to the filthy floor

Covered in a bloody gore

They pulled and poked and taunted me

All my sins were there, to see

The prince of darkness sat on his throne

Made of angel hair and human bone

With empty eyes and heart of stone

He spoke in tongues and evil tones

This is but the price, you pay

For living in a sinful way

There is no ending once we begin

Ah’ welcome to the house of sin!


He rose on high up off his throne

His evil eyes, pierced my bone

Rise up sinner, off your knees

He said, ignoring all my pleads

Here is the place where you will dwell

He showed me now, the gates of hell

A demon flung the basement door

An inferno was the basement floor

The heat so hot, the smoke did rise

It stole my breath and burned my eyes

I heard the crying of the lonely

Of sinners and lost souls moaning

Swimming in a molten sea

They screamed and swore, and reached for me

The demons laughed and minions danced

The prince of darkness did advance

All your life, I spoke to you

And made your heart and soul untrue

But it was you that let the evil in

Ah’ welcome to the house sin!


The evil one motioned me to speak

You sicken me, you are so weak

I wept and couldn’t find by voice

But it was true I had, had a choice

The free will God had given me

Was thrown away on vanity

The howling demons groped at me

In this place without sympathy

They took me to the basement stair

Into the eternal fire I did stare

I prayed to God that I could be forgiven

For the sinful way I had been living

It’s to late the devil laughed

Your time for redemption has surely passed

I shall have my minions throw you in the hole

You’ll rot in hell I’ll burn your soul

There’s simply nothing you can do

And to think I just left it up to you

Open the door and fools walk in

Ah’ welcome to the house of sin!

I had noticed that this was flowing just like Poe's "The Raven" even before the "Nevermore" reference. This is dark and haunting and such a tightly woven story. Exceptional write!
