Swan Song (A Poem)

An ominous river seeps into the sea 
all the murky forbidding clouds hover over me 
I am the precise prodigy of indisputable sin 
trying to attain any momentary lucidity  
A hollow sorrowful echo whispers psalms softly 
a child forced into a fighter turns the sky into bloody tears 
unqualified chaos settles; a travesty for an unwitting mind 
sadly, this narrative has no happy ending 
A sacrifice so unbearable where everything is eventually lost 
the brilliance of the night abruptly fades as a gloominess settles 
gaze through the fog, beyond his falling tears, and into a fragmented soul 
shadows perform a departing dance as a dismissing death-blow is struck

  1. How do you define taintedness? If this is the language of the tainted soul, it is more beautiful than the language of love.
    Brilliant writing. Thanks for the follow. Glad to be reading you now.
