Suddenly


27 nominations

Suddenly, The bewildered sun takes to her heels, So fearfully fast behind the fleeing clouds Blazing on the volume of her strength In utmost defiance to sustain her rule As darkness plots his coup in broad daylight Painting the world with sudden stigmatic darkness Suddenly, man is fear and fear is man Suddenly, The wind screams out unprecedented disaffection Plucking even the strongest trees Uprooting the trembling houses Revolting with her lightening and flashing As the red wasting world stood still In absolute paralysis Suddenly, the end is here Suddenly, The earth shut her ears with her filthy quivering hands, Against the deafening piercing cries of the peoples As water from the humans’ eyes form into a river of death Suddenly, the ocean broke through her banks too Stretching forth her ugly unforgiving fingers Swallowing sinful men into her hungry bowels Suddenly, so suddenly, the world is gone.
