When The Stars Fell Like Rain

When the stars fell like rain

the darkest of nights fell.

Skies descended and death

silhouettes swallowed hope.


Cosmic despair fell down

in fiery orbs weeping,

and the cadaverous

crescent churned oceans tides.


Tempered the winds howled

in lamentation, the

Earth mother spun with

silent revolution.


The birds whooshing feathers

eerily flitting in

their mournful departure

and the demise of man.
