Starless Starless Night

Poem By Emily Myers

The flashing light surrounds me
I look at it in awe
The black of night unveiled at last
The water starts to pour
No longer can my tears distinguish
Who I really am
The cool rain drops hide my pain
And erase all I have been
Roaring thunder drowns my screams
Silencing the anguish
Not a single star is seen
The brilliant moon has vanished

To dream the things im dreaming, which I never can achieve

Murder Of The Butterfly

In the silence I hear soft and convicting
The scream of a butterfly, loud and unnerving
Caught in a gossamer web layered with dew
The spider advances and the terror is new

Autumn's Last Stand

The firey leaves
grasp at the branches
hoping they can last-
