Ignite hell's biting bullets that scorch and sting,
Against heaven's armies that stand and sing.
When the might of garish gods befalls us all,
Where nations crumble and meek mortals fall,
Then celestial suicide will be our fate's call.

Skies will turn to smoke and seas will burn to steam,
Demons will howl. Angels will die. Men will dream.
To believe in an eternal peace beyond war's breath,
No more to suffer through eyes that despair death,
Never to crumble hearts into pits of blackened dust.

Blind hell's hope that bring waves of ruin and rust,
Against heaven's anguish that bring terror and trust.
When the sight of humble humanity suffers defeat,
Where societies tremble and lost leaders meet,
Then universal disaster will be our's generation's treat.

Spirits will turn to shade and souls will burn to sleet,
Demons will growl. Angels will cry. Men will scream.
To believe in an internal lease beyond war's sight,
No more to fear opposing voices that murder might,
Never to extinguish minds into voids of reddened fire.

Crush hell's furious flame that damns their desire,
Against heaven's anger that poisons their pyre.
When the light of yearning youth extinguishes power,
Where lovers stumble and vile villains cower,
Then survival horror will be our destiny's flower.

Space will turn to sand and stars will burn to shower,
Demons will prowl. Angels will fly. Men will scheme.
To believe in a nocturnal ease beyond war's fling,
No more to care about lies that burdens bring,
Never to perish lives into chasms of a darkened king.
This was inspired by images of climatic battles at the end of the world between angels and demons. I also drew inspiration from "superhero" battles. You know the good guy battles a evil guy in a fight to save the world sort of thing. Superhero comics could be considered a modern mythology. Just as Greco-Roman deities are grounded in fantasy, so too are "superheroes".

The rhyme scheme is simple but also complex I think. I've trie my best to maintain a rhyme structure throughout, to the point of certain stanzas after stanza 1 flow into one another. I have used my own notion of poetic licence in this.

Great atmosphere is created by your choice of words. I also really like the 2nd Verses of 2, 4 and 6 because they give an insight to what each side is doing and with the short sentences it seems like blows of attacks.
Nice poem overall, with a great story! (:

"Skies will turn to smoke and seas will burn to steam,"
"Space will turn to sand and stars will burn to shower,"

Particularly well written lines.

Thanks. Took me a little while to make the last line fit with the rest to keep the rhyme together. Still quite happy with the result.
