Shutter

Shutter, the music,

The lilac and lavender

Faith, come undone

Like a viral scavenger

The day is new

Yet the sky is dark

This is song is unsung

The death of a lark

A new age dawns

A shift in the sky

Forced yet unquestioned

A want without lie

Discover the dawn

Orange and red, blind

Not knowing its color

The murderous kind

With blood in the air

 A weapon, life’s beat

Discover the Hades

Kneel at its feet

There is no bright sky

Only death to be seen

This story untold

It’s flavor, so mean
