Murderous Sun

Clear, blue, serene
as it awaits
the setting of
the bloody sun.

As it awaits
time of slaughter
the bloody sun
smiles in waiting.

Time of slaughter
approaches quick.
Smiles in waiting
are soon to droop.

Approaches quick
as passerbys
are soon to droop.
As they look on,

as passerbys,
the grinning sun,
as they look on,
thrusts in the sky.

The grinning sun
shatters the sky;
thrusts in the sky;
kills its beauty.

Shatters the sky
to ruin and
kill its beauty.
So quickly done.

To ruin
the setting
so quickly; once
clear, blue, serene.

This is a very well written poem. Beautiful and serene. Good job. Any inspiration? It reminds me of the Aztecs for some reason.

I was actually just looking at the sun outside when I wrote it.
