Random Poem:

Sequence 24

Darkness burrows her meager attempt to overcome vulnerability.
Despite hollow whispers, hues of amber
commence the curtain call of blind ash smeared eyes.
Rays swimming along pristine reflections. The nights fading infamy.
Frost clinging to the glass sphere out crying
the proverbial echoes of sunrise. Swords of condensation swallowed.
Natural anesthesia aids lullabies, maturing
into symphonies conducted by the stars. Relinquished horizons
of twilight compromise the columns of daylight that lay the foundation.
Slumbering stereotypes greet the moon with a smile and a bow,
illuminating the asphyxiation by sol.
