Crimson Sky

attempting to keep the splendid
crimson sky in my sights 
before it passes by
as it rolls over the dying sun
spilling over the nightly sky
gone are the glory days
my great expectations
life i once breathed 
changes appear 
before my weary eyes
with surefire quickness
my story is expressed
while my shattered mind 
with whispered tears 
and trembling hand
a flicker of light realizes
the ultimate sunset
