All things will fall

For the Secret Keeper’s weekly writing prompt. The words to use are



Far from the bloody, war-loud plain,

Beneath the hum-drum beat of rain

Or hail—nothing escapes the pain.


No pitch black wrong, no purest right,

Behind this leap into the night,

Or fall—the act’s rope slack, not tight.


A smothered squeal, a piercing cry,

A feathered bolt falls from the sky,

Or red-furred streak—all things must die.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
