The Blackened Wild

The skyline crumbles into blighted green
Breaking off from twilight once so serene
Drawn into the falling, ink-painted void
Strutting on down through back-roads most avoid
Until a fearsome blackness breaks the scene

All angles devoid of twinkling light
Frigid air strokes against nerves that ignite
Fears, all formless, grasping with wicked claw
Jagged renders flay art from flesh born flaw
Flailing blindly against hands in the night

The bluster decays all in silent calm
Defeat chills deep before the dim embalm
Of childish fretting in peaceful rest;
Deathless plays all dispensed out in protest
Before terror extended its raw palm
