All Was Still, All Was Silent ( Conclusion )

Source



Hell unleashed

    with deathly wings

That part the red sea

    and rain fire

      upon open water

   as it draws ever nearer

to the city,

   no longer asleep


waves are now

  crashing on shores

    without defense

  as the crowds

lose control

   of reason

     and sense,

   giving into panic

and insanity


        fear and despair

    flood the streets

as impending doom

    delivers its first

 taste of chaos

    upon memories

         of caged torment


Time stops

  Lives cease

Constructs disperse

  Into the breeze

Eyes widen

  Screams cut short

Last sights seen

  Before last breath

Born again

  Though this time

He will not submit

  To the hands of men






 An age begins

   As man’s age ends

      A monster breathes

        At our expense



Creation remains

     unaffected

by the end of an atom,

   and undeterred

by the death of Adam


And all was still

    and all was silent...

Once again...

Oddly enough, one overriding fact: - an individual dies only once, whether from age, accident, pneumonia galaxies colliding or Earth collapsing. Perhaps we worry for naught if we overly concern ourselves with major calamities. It makes for good box-office proceeds but the undertakers get their pay either way.

I like the drama you infused into it, Ben. I expected no less of you. It is full of sound and fury - color and high tension. Good story! And you also write of LIFE well!

If the dragon is a rift in the fabric of reality, then I think I get it lol It still seems more like a dimensional problem to me, but it's still a great set of poems, either way :D

crysto - thank you

MOimstead - Haha, thanks for that rhyme! It's funny how you read them out of order though. Try reading all 4 from the beginning, I put links to the next part on the bottom of them. Thanks for the comments :]

Mentalist - That's cool, my name is Benjamin, also Benji, but I go by Ben haha. Thanks for the comments

Pooh - WOW, thanks so much :] I had some trouble with the ending, so I waited a couple days for inspiration. I think it turned out pretty good, thanks for that :D

I have to say you've outdone your self with this series and the way you managed to pull it all together in one resounding dark unspeakably horrible end. Sure makes one think and shudder at the possibility. Also makes me really glad I'm out of here before it gets that bad with the promise of Rapture! Great write!

As someone who's been through a hurricane down here in La. this hits close to home,bravo Ben...by the way my late father's name was Ben as in Benford.;)

A battle in my mind has been inspired by your rhymes. As guns and fires blaze, I've witnessed society razed. Beyond those wave beaten shores I see the crowds, and looters in the stores. Chaos is their mantra, screaming riot in the streets as the thump of a single atom beats it's final beat. Great job man! Packed with amazing, energetic visuals! Must read the first two parts, but still great!
