Forever More

Acid rain falling
Down, down
Liquid whips torturing the slow journey of the wooden train
A single drop squeezing through the wood roof
Hit a still pallid form on the nose
An eye blinks
They are still alive
Sliding down to the ground
Rolling across the floor, covered with blood and murder
Out into the ice wind again
Through the ominous black gates
Tall guards that protect fires of sadness and death
Not protecting from entering but from exiting
A land of opposites
To die is to live
Hate to indifference
Pain and sadness equal the amount of happiness in a normal life
A slow piano playing mournful tunes
Notes drifting through the air, sluggish and solemn
Out of the ashen chimney and into the choking air
Across the broken backs toiling under a frozen sun
Rolling heedlessly over the smoking gray bodies
Expressions of pain on their mouths
But peace in their eyes
Up, up into the sobbing heavens where it slowly disappears as if it never was
A gray life
No color, no sound
Just the churning of the movie reel
A flickering black and white scene filled with silence and staring eyes
Heartbroken as the world watches
Neither caring nor crying
A tiny snowflake, completely unique and delicately beautiful
Fluttering down, down, down
Weaving an intricate pattern into the air
But no one is there
No one knows
Landing on a frozen nose to instantly dissipate and never come back
A body falling down, cold and numb, to the petrified ground
Down, down to the soft warm ground
Eyes slowly closing and knees slowly buckling
Silently hitting the soil
But no one sees
No one cares
No one knows
Just another leaf from a tree
A stiff dead leaf willingly letting go to fall, relieved, to the floor and never live again
To become one with the earth
To return to where one was born
To sleep forever more

Forever More
