Raptured Tempests

Verbose crystalled tears bestride Flaring high on ornately veined clouds Racking thunderclaps fracture the horizon Protesting the abdication of daylight Here the morose summer showers weep In heavy erosion washing yesterdays pains An ascending dusk pursues the mislay moon Lost in the felled bodies chafing the steely skies Phantoms murmur atop flamed winged steeds Dancing on the peaks of the worlds rooftop Tombs satiated in truth opening with echoes Are purified by the banks of rolled morning mists And the harmonious stillness of dawn Drones out the silence of innocence
