Vanity Dreams I

 

Ash colored skies with rain,

skyscrapers glaring at the river.

Windows rocking to and from,

high winds in the sixty miles an hour range.

 

Standing above the world,

a dark smile covered with rain.

Basking in the moment of silence,

lips slightly move the words of prayer.

 

Rising to power from the knees,

a servant from the underworld.

Flashing color of danger in hazel eyes,

jet black mane across his shoulders.

 

Entrusted with a scroll from Babylon,

watching the clouds release their anger.

The strokes of a painter in heartache,

a titter on the rooftop.

 

Praising the abyssal dragon,

plans hidden in his heart.

A king of a world in fire,

waiting with a hushed heart.
