Eerie calmness slowly descends,
As a lone voice delivers silence.
Scathing wounds no one mends,
The spirit of vengeance grows tense....

Roaring winds begin to rise,
Sweeping down upon vulture wings.
I see the blackness in the eyes,
And the melody of death now sings....

Molten fury taken to the sky,
As a fiery tempest rips the night.
Beginning as the devil's sigh,
Progressing into a whirlwind flight....

Innocence is cruelly shattered,
Drowning in a blood laced wave.
Coherent thoughts are scattered,
We know we cannot be saved....

Blinding pain quickly strikes,
Surging through our tattered souls.
Destroying old and young alike,
Enraged anger now taking it's toll....

Now settled is the choking dust,
And scarlet streams washed away.
Like most, this was a war unjust,
Within us the scars will forever stay....

A great poem my friend, I enjoy the reading of darkness and anything written by yourself. Thanks for a great read, my friend.

Dusk-- Thank you very much, my friend. Your words have always meant the world to me.

Nan-- You echo what many have told me..I have an old soul you could say. Thank you.

Krista, to have your talent at your age dear would be a Godsend for sure. Never quite writing, you have a gift

Alwye, You touched me with this one.

Yesterday is history, tomorrow just a mystery. And if today is good to me how could I ask for more?
