A social site for poets in Sydney.
Where the fires lie and the heavens burn
Are the shades of life that will not return
From the day that you can take control
Eternally yours are the seas and their souls
Beneath the screams buried in the wall
Are the frightening truths that must be told
To the loveless being so tainted by blood
The world will open to the deluge and the flood
Impaired insight of the lustful dreams
Falling away through the earth and the streams
Deliverance proves to arrive in the third
When it’s all long gone and lost without a word

Nicely written poem, it flows nicely and rhymes well. I particularly like the second stanza as it begins to reveal a little more about the horrors of the holocaust; in fact, I would have liked it if you'd revealed more of the horrors the Jews suffered at the hands of a lunatic in Hitler.
