Landscapes of Grey

Landscapes of grey,
skies dark with lost hope
Along the torch-lit way
fields of heliotrope

These once-mortals tread
in an afterworld haze
Forced to relive
all of their dark days

Hades oversees
the land of the dead
As fear,guilt and shame
rest like crowns on each head

Abandon all hope
the dark gates decree
The spirits that pass
are no longer free
