Shutter

A Dance of Red Emotion

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

surreal poetry
How does it work?
