Keep Your Eyes On The Sky (The Sinking Skies)

Above, the clouds moved
A ghost shadow below
Closing in so quick, death
Swallowing souls as it swept

Many orange lights blinked
Open car doors, abandoned
Believing in the strength of their feet
A sudden rash from death

Abrupt, loud screams everywhere
Animal and human alike
Amidst unnatural noise,
Alarming cars and crushing buildings

Mother, she screamed
Sadden eyes, watered, both
As their hand grip loosened
Becoming one with the shadow

He stood still, hopeless
As the sky fell in
Drowning all human life, an apocalypse
Large saucers like clouds, ships
Carrying Earth's visitors,
The beings from mars
