A Thousand Shades of Black

written by: Jerry Langdon


The obsidian sky ripped open,
Pouring out a rain of crows;
Bleeding darkness upon my soul.
Summoning me to roam Gehenna.
The beating of a dozen celestial wings
Deafening me with madness
As death fell upon me,
Draping me in a dismal cloak.
A voice rolled as thunder
Delivering a mirage of peace and fear,
As I sank in a thousand shades of black.
