Skybound Battles

by mandaceehb

The sky screamed

As the sun slashed cuts across its enormous body

Bloody pink gashes that extended across whole cities

As the sun surreptitiously slinked away


The sky was in unbearable pain

And tears began to fall

Faster, faster

Turning into a terrible storm

People ran away to hide in their homes

No one to console the sky

Who lives to protect our heads

From the dangers beyond our eye


Darkness came

And defeated the sky in its moment of weakness

Consumed the bright sky we so love

And transformed it into a sea of lurking blackness


The reign of darkness always lasts hours

But never forever


As the constant battle between darkness and light resumes

As the first hint of daybreak appears

The rooster conveys the first cry of victory

The first sign of hope
