The return

I am the last word
Resting on the edge of mankind's extinction
Awaiting the last breath

Many words have been spoken
Many breaths taken
And now we are at the end

The waters have risen
To reclaim their space
The goddess has been angered
And her wrath runs free
Through the towns and cities
Through farm land and distant fields

She spews lava
While the god reaches down with tentacles of fire
Melting glaciers and drowning polar bears

They come together in embrace
Their love is death

Hey kojo,

Very good poem and so true it's scary, but hopefully the ending will just be another new beginning.

Take care,


ps- I saw on your other blog that the 10th is your birthday? Happy B-day, mine too!
