The Gates of Hell by Napoleon Nalcot

“We are each our own devil, and we make this world our hell.”
― Oscar Wilde
Gone are the Gates of Hell published--
A flaw it was, indeed;
But someone thinks what he had wished:
The hell that he has made.

So much for telling truths and lies
And deep imaginings;
The Gates of Hell seen through his eyes
Is one hell best of things.

The Gates of Hell reside in us
If we would let it be;
Not in a place we think it was
But where we drift away.
