Fearful Symmetry

porcelain dreams, transparent
possibly fragile, shallow
pausing on the brink
perpetual sanity, vanishing
plausible ideas, imaginary
pleading desperate falls heavy
plodding on empty ears
pleasure a constant manacle
pain a forgotten memory
prickling nerves now alive
producing persistent panic

Day One Hundred and Seventy Five: 14th January 2013

The shimmering horizon hung expectantly,
Draped elegantly between primeval trees,
A kaleidoscope of colours dancing,
When a deafening noise erupted,
Ploughing through a pristine landscape.

And the people watched on.

Eager for progress and reward,
Forgetful of their custodial obligation,
And the future eager generations.

Now looking back in despair.
