Flood endured

By: Shelbi Henny

You can't take me under
Our spread me apart
Succumb to fixation
Leave me in the dark
Smoldering allies
Tainted with blood
I've warned you
To show me the barriers
That circle the truth
To lead me
With trusting you
Though my city in ruins
Haunted and tainted
We once had roses
Now fire replaces
What music we made
Only playing again
To the silence
Developing rage
To the silence
Humming your name
To the silence
We fell in tune
Moisture from rampage
Developed the news
Of a rustic cocoon
Under the sea
Were I've drowned
Buildings flooded
A titanic ship wreck
That suffers beyond Katrina
I've warned you
Of chaos
