Black Seeds - Poem by OddWiking Rahlff

And thus we get an enemy:
A malevolent messiah
Smiles as he forces
Free birds
Into thousands of screaming shards
Leaving unreal cartoon contours
In a melting block
Forever ravaged
As our shared mind-eyes are
Stunned witnesses to
The apocalyptic horror
All that remains
A cathedral of pain
And dark seeds of vengeance
