Turn of Mind

A voice screams out in agony
so pure it takes the breathe away
* all within a turn of mind *
a great fire unleashed
to rage within/without
consuming all that ever was

As quickly as it comes
it goes
leaving only echoes;
rebound of what might have been

and death begins
to overtake the hope of life
with promises
of warm, enclosing womb

In silence felt,
the shadows stretch
beyond the edge of time

and there,
within the darkness
slept the dream...
