Something Amazing Dripping Red

Rating: 5.0


There was, transcending the universe,
The very thought of white
Attacking everything.
The sun's fragile light bursts
And gathers in a swarm.
The radiant pieces tessellate
Into a fine mosaic form
Of buildings o'er towering our heads
As cluttered as the overcast.
They quickly dive, and surely they hit
All what's small and innocent.
And now the walls are dripping red
Onto the faded floors.
Severed lives are flickering
The heart beat of a corpse,
As the glorious form detaches
And begins to rearrange.
Oh! the spheric room is desolate,
And tragically disengaged!
Now the sun's away, away,
To its eternal slumber at bay.

i love the beginning, but at the last line, the flow of everything sort of...stopped. usually the first and last lines are most important, but still, great read.

Such an expansive imagery made me run in a futile attempt to try and keep up with this. This must be real poetry, since it confused me and then made me feel alternately excited and then dejected.
