Grey Sky, Grey Home


Dark clouds loomed in the sky

He walked underneath them on the empty road

The atmosphere was stll, with no signs of life, not even an unearthly cry

He carried on, undeterred, striding in his long black overcoat.


The sky rumbled, a nearby swing creaked

A chilly wind rose, unwelcomed by the ancient trees

The downpour began and rain into his hair, seeped

The perfect companion for an environment so bleached


A huge gate welcomed him into a land long forgotten

He stood outside it, inanimate, contemplating

Lifeless trees peered at him from inside, the shrubs beneath them rotten

The watery wind forced him inside filling his heart with despair.


The stone stairs, grimy, were slapped with his boots

The wooden door stood forlorn, holding the crumbling place

He grasped the knob, it broke and rolled away, revealing the creeper's slimy roots

With all his military strenght, the door was kicked down


The house reeked of mud and death

Like he had that day, firing at will, unaware of the same fate for him

And despite the grey sky, the thunderstorm and his family out of breath

In the split second, he was home.


And despite the emptiness and destruction in the city

His homecoming brought him satiety.
