As I look out the window and see the clouds of smoke
People are leaving their house,
With their face drained of hope
Close by I see people crying,
In the distance I hear people screaming
The worst is happening,
Only this time we’re not dreaming
The faithful are gathering,
Holding hands and praying
The tainted are bargaining,
Taking anything that can be taken
The weak are jumping off buildings,
Leaving blood on the pavement
Large scale of suicides
Whether by knife, gun, or hanging
It’s anarchy out there
And it has only begun
I’m damned to the flames
Because my sins can’t be undone
Negative poetry is so much easier to do, wouldn't you agree?
That's why I try to stay away from it.
Wow that was very dramatic!! Great work, cant wait to see what's next! (PS hope your move was successful)
And it was!
I just have... Kind of a lot of homework now.
But, it's all fine!
Thanks for your concern!
When I feel exceptionally depressed (as I am now), I see your poem matching the current state of the world. In some sense, anyways...
ahah quite an ironic poem concireding your name Always love epic end of the world poetry. And I love the last 2 lines
I'm glad you enjoyed it!
And I've written darker stuff
oeh gotta check that out. I like the dark stuff and everything I write tends to go dark
Wow this is really deep, I love it
wow, nice poem for the beginning of the end
Very well written; in a way I founded this deep but in another I loved it.
Another excellent poem.
Line 12 says "of", when it should be "off".
Sorry, I'm a bit of a grammar Nazi.
What can I say? You make great job once again!
Bleak! Very Blake-esque! I am so pleased you remembered us talking about this! I was curious to see if you'd take it literally or as a paradigm shift and I like what you have done with it. How do you make the mention? I have never been able to figure it out.
I'm not sure.
I'd search for it on Google.
Also, who's/what's "blake-esque"?
And of course I wouldn't forget!
I'm glad you liked it !
This is an awesome poem.
I love this poem! Nicely done.
