FALLING GLASS

Searing glass shatters
severing limbs and life
leaving all in tatters
exposing so evil strife.

Indifferent to the plight
no direction or motive
as diamonds of night
sharing damage to give.

Finding the paths long
sending shivers growth
emotions blended song
in anger’s terrible oath.

Timbers fell in terror
amid the falling glass
hates very brief visitor
filling a broad morass.

None could now survive
only death to be found
where anger did strive
splintered glasses sound
