EARTH-ACHE

Written by: Andi Abderrahmane

A sweet dream, 
Horrendous screams
Aborted.

Secret inner fears,
Now to the extreme
Ignited.

Seeking a gleam 
Out in the night 
I hurried.

Greed- sharpened claws,
Dripping blood
The soil deeply clenched

Dying Planet
Past glorious days helplessly
Mourned.

Droves of lost earthlings
Dark streets
Roamed

Ravenous sharks , 
biophagous marauders
I recognized

Scrumptious baitballs, 
fleshy quarries
Oddly ignored


Predators and preys 
For a sanctuary 
They all fierily looked

Side by side
The street they sorely
lurched

Doomed 
For life they desperately
Gasped

Poisonous belch 
Their senses to death
Throttled.
