Like a Tear

The end days, mud in the eyes worms crawling through.

Madman Chronicles; Like a Tear

Face dark as silt, high water crashing, cascading down, yellow/white, red vein showing, tide rolls in smooth, liquid saline blanket. Lids blink, reveal eyes of mud. A white worm crawls through, falls across the cheek like a tear.

Thick lips grimace, create a parody of a grin. Teeth, whiter than white, ivory columns part and a pink snake leaps out, seizes the falling morsel and bears it home like a tear, like a hostage, like a promise
protesting Genesis.

The pearl white gates fall as the tide flows back. Eyes slam shut, then open, yellow/white, vein broken, red blood drips down an ebony cheek of sand like a tear, like a river become man.

Lightning arcs shiver, destroy the fabric of the sky. An insignificant mound of sand rises up, shouts curses unheeded to the heavens. Fear is born in the mud of its eyes. Thunder breaks. The man thing falls down. It is come to pray, to be carried away like a tear, like a promise of nations.

I have to agree MarK.
I love when I am able to read a story and picture it happening in my mind, at the same time.
To me, that means it was good.
Thank you for sharing.:)

Pictures in the mind are a good thing (most times;-)
