Fall of the Sky

Updated on March 1, 2012

A hynotic sea of blue nicely
Reflects the morning sky.

Serene, yet penetrating
The sky shows off the
Bright yellow sun
Climbing patiently
Higher to the sky
Carrying us our day

Rolling in from the west
Armies of the skies
Converge their troops
To do battle over the plains

By mid-day the first attack
Has arrived-
Consisting of small white
Puffy soldiers
Who hastily eat up
Portions of the sky
As they quietly and swiftly
Move to the East

Halfway through the afternoon
Larger patches of darker-
More threatening forces-
Make their way in from the southwest

It was almost methodical in the
Way they took control of about
Half the sky - occasionally
Blotting out the sun

By early evening the oppressing
Forces had become as dark as
Black itself,
But the sky still had hold

The sun setting in the west
Is engulfed into a vast
Mass of blackness that
Slowly creeps to the east

Stars reinforce the night sky-
To watch and defend
While the sun is at rest

Early into the night
Tha dark mass of warriors
Have finally made their
Way to us

Quickly and efficiently they
Supress the last shining stars

The drums of the enemy
Boom loudly in the distance
As their fireworks
Light up the sky

Just near midnight
The sky has left but
One single star
In the eastern sky

The misty blackness
Of infinity
Devoours it!

A drop of water deafeningly
Crashes onto the window

Upwards the last star
Is gone

In it's conquest
Drums beat thunderously
And deadly fireworks
Crash against the
Empty background

And intensely - the rain begins to fall.

      Nice poem, lyrical and clear with a build up in it. The analogy throughout is great. I like it!

      Thanks again Frank. I actually wrote this in college, kind of funny, there are four more parts and I had chances to sell this part alone, but being young and idealistic I said all or none. Got none. LOL
