liquid Tears purple Bruises/whispers Never felt so Loud(Pantoum Challenge Co-write with Hans Bump)


Chained to a cult of expectation
cascading rain of liquid tears
wrapped in passion's silent cover
comfort brought by the closeness of fears.

Cascading rain of liquid tears;
It's precipitating purple bruises,
comfort brought by the closeness of fears
thunder whispers it like a lover.

It's precipitating! Purple bruises;
an angry welt of mad sky,
THUNDER! Whispers it like a lover
it's noisy touch reaching from an ecstatic high.

An angry welt of mad sky,
slashed across the damaged clouds
it's noisy touch reaching from an ecstatic high
whispers never felt so loud.

Slashed! Across the damaged clouds
society "values" are mirrored,
Whispers never felt so loud
Chained to a cult of expectation.

This is adventurous, insightful, brave and unique. It left quite an impression. I am completely nonobjective about this opinion.
