So I am am bored and figure I'd write a poem to help temporarily kill the boredom.

~The Last Spark~

Aloft the sky bleeds so near
And moans as if in pain
Echoing every wept tear
All screams still are, but vain

The hair of his is tossed about
In winded gusts of hurt
His face wrenched from the route
Of meaningless effort

Distant from the world ablaze
He softly whispers out
Oh jumbled is this life long maze
Of certainty and doubt

Impostors hide within decay
Of truth's befuddled foe
The snake of lies slithers astray
Where embers fall like snow

Flames leap across the night
Scouring all the lands
Explosions rock the yonder sight
In deaths chaotic hands

Turbulence of swift demise
Ravages the lost
The only light within these eyes
Is amply over glossed

Upon this lonely rooftop perch
Sheltered where he dwells
His mind readies for the search
To escape this man made hell

He sprints from roof to roof
And bounds from ledge to ledge
He darts from loss to loss
While uttering his pledge

While ashes fall where rain be sought
Though time is cruel to all
Regardless of any forethought
Endless is mans fall

Though screams will scorch the earth abroad
My mind will fail me not
The answer hides in this facade
Pleading to be caught

The dust of death through all veins flows
The blood of mine lacks rot
The life of man seems to draw close
Although my throat does clot

Oh ignorance, your lies sear those
Denial, you're so sly
But in this mind sharp, trained to see
I'll escape before I die!

Though hate and fear muddy the view
Though long I must embark
I will be guided as so few
For I am the last spark

Great lines liked it, remember seek truth and truth will be your friend ie most wont take the time to know what you say.

Refine make every letter beautiful and horrid, we are all brothers, in words.

You are blessed this is a journey words light,pictures darkness,love us and you forever.
