Falling

This poem is the winner of our first-ever Poetry Razzie Awards

Swallowing
Devouring
Sweet Despair –
Beautiful Gloom
Sun-drenched oblivion beckons
Like an open mouth,
Smiling.

Following
Falling
Bright Darkness
Joyful Doom
The only hope is no hope
I am screaming
With an open mouth,
Smiling.
