Favorite Quote:
Be the good you wish to see in the world


bricks come crashing

to the ground

a wall in shambles

once was sound

 


take an axe

to a tree full of life

chopped at its root

for others delight

 


a meteor starts

aflame in the sky

but turns to dust

when all the sparks die

 


a loving whisper

soon will turn to a shout

even the brightest things burn out


The author's comments:

I have been writing for a few years now and recently recovered this piece from when I wrote about a seemingly perfect love unexpectedly dying out. I love this poem because of its simplicity to read yet deep meaning when you take a second look and how euphonic it is despite having more of a dismal theme. The title is a play on “an ode” to a particular thing by saying “a forebode” instead to expand on the idea that even the good will still end.
