before the deluge,

greying clouds congregate,

rumble,

&

roll,

casual,
merciless,
oblivious,

self assuredly sure,

sprinkling hope,

willing,

&

able,

to endure,

though besieged by the torrents of fate,

assaulted as time idly shambles past,

skewering the memories,

once betrayed,
destined eternally to last,

while drowning,
sinking,

going under,
diving deep beneath,

the tides of mishmashed grumbles,

lost in a numbed haze,
of unfinished mumbles,

all promising cascades,

of,
dazzling hues,

amidst strawberry shades,

while wills crumble,

&

resolve fades.
