Random Poem:

Burning Rhyme

Walking on shadows of man's despair,
under gleaming midnight hue,
above the marrowless marshland,
to the drifting fog that runs anew.
Shifting clouds can not contain
the sins of a time,
or turn the page in the book of age,
despite the scent of pine.
And in this dawn
we retire our minds,
dazed at our essence in the
burning of rhyme.
