War Between The Worlds
The noise, the deafening noise.
A battle rages to my north.
Armies of ships fall to my side,
weighing on my heart for those inside.
The metal torn and burned, the sound
of electricity courses through my veins.
Waves of terror surround me, while those
untouched and safe know nothing.
The coming of time, sets the pace for a new era.
Like beasts of armour they wheel fate,
determination to break through the barriers
that separate them from us.
The trumpets wail, and wings fall.
The masters reproach treads near.
The bow breaks and the floodgates of peril,
wash over us, drowning the luminating heat of despair
The finale draws near as I’m blinded by glorious light, stars fall from their designation,
The universe goes silent, the darkness, the nothingness, my mind slows, I fall…..
