Invisible Boundaries and Electric Fences

by Ashleigh Skye   May 17, 2007

Trapped. . .
Gray clouds looming overhead.
Flowers wilt with a single touch.
Decay and misery rising up from the ground,
that once gave life to smiles.

Trapped. . .
Painful screams echoing in the breeze.
The once cheerful sun burning flesh.
Tainted water abundant during drought,
with no signs of forthcoming rain.

Trapped. . .
Each species poached by anger.
Humanity long since extinct.
The moon with all it's magnificent power,
prepared to fall.

    Wow, this piece is breath- taking. I can relate to it, and I like it from the beginning to the end. every stanza is greatly written, and the whole poem has superb wording.
    I like the repetition of the first line in every stanza, it adds powerful effect to the piece.
    Well done, 5/5 from me.
