APOCALYPSE

You hasten unto the grim hour When roses wilt and tastes turn sour And rhetorical gasps escape your lips In wonderment of the ill eclipse And all that was once fair goes in reverse Anon, good diminishes and bad becomes worse The scorching stars fall after the moon collides The remnant of desolation the Apocalypse… Continue reading APOCALYPSE

TEARS OF AGONY

All were at ease Oblivious of what fate planned; Birds of the air were at peace, Trees of the hills were calm, Pedestrians walked with zest… The inhabitants were unaware Of the executioners penchant for homicide They laid their yearnings for regicide at rest.
