Dark clouds, long shadows.
Mary's tears descend.
Drip like artillery.
Falling like like lead rain, draped in copper jacket.
Due death's darkness descends.
It was him, but it was I.
My soul conquered, my body returns to it's creator.
What awaits?

I can see fancy red polka dots,
My vision, the sun they blot.
Hate I gave, yet love I sought.

This is a very interesting piece. I love your use of literary devices like alliteration and such. Nice descriptions too. My favorite line was that last one. Very powerful, in my opinion. Well done! :)
