THE OBSIDIAN POET

DISSECTING THE OBSIDIAN POET

You have seen the book, met the Author and Entered the GIVEAWAY!!

It is time to see the other aspects of the Artist Shannon McRoberts:

 THE POET
 
In A Thousand Years:
 
Tear drops shatter-
like broken shards of glass.
 
My heart ceases to beat-
beneath the misery.
 
The somber raven-
pecks at my soul.
 
My very core-
 is numb with your lies.
 
The charred embers-
of all that we were.
 
In a thousand years-
my apocalyptic sun won’t matter.
 
In a thousand years-
we won’t even be a memory.
 
In a thousand years-
your betrayal won’t sting.
 
In a thousand years-
I will finally be free
