prelude to empty sky
soft gray rain

slid from the sky

as quiet tears

from a saddened world

were held captive

by a false sun

emotion's promise

was betrayed

in a gathering

shower of sparks

that represented

humanity's turn

away from kindness

and toward

a greedy horizon

filled with falsehood

moved a civilization

eyes watch now

searching for answers

cast spell dim

magic becomes rain

prelude to tomorrow

and an empty sky
