The judgment of the eyes


The judgment of the eyes
is a fire, a consuming
fire, unquenchable,
burning what it surveys,
destroying what it encounters,
scorching with a terrible heat
cities,
earth,
hearts,
souls,
itself,
leaving ashes,
only ashes.

Light
like fire
shining
brighter
than earth
He sees
us through
and through

You cannot hide from God. Great poem!
