Alive but not living

As I walk down the narrow, spiral stairs
I feel it cave in upon me
My heart beats faster and harder
As I hear woeful cries louder and louder

Why are those people hitting the ground,
Beating their chest?
Why are they in perpetual sorrow,
Lamenting and wailing?

I reach the end of the stairs
And see a gate in front of me
With it a sign floating in the air
Saying “Enter and devoured you will be”.

Upon seeing their pain and misery,
I turn my back and instantly flee.
I will never forget that sight,
A monstrous immortal fire engulfing all that can be.

I heard the pain lasts forever,
The torment eternal.
Take heed.
