Sounds and Sights by John (“Jake”) Cosmos Aller

Sounds and sights
That no one else sees killing my mind

Silver trumpets blasting
Away the sounds the sounds

Overcoming all
With the sweat succulent smell of death

Flowers blooming
No one to see

Birds singing
No one to hear

The music of the spheres
No one knows the rain,

The snows
The fires of life

Covering all
With a feel, a scent,
A touch of certain doom
