The Spell of Destruction

It should have stayed in the shadows
Beyond all mortals’ touch
A horror unleashed
By hatred and fury
And tempered by dark curiosity

Bodies left in this monster’s wake
As it is summoned again
And again
In the name of victory and desperation
Ignoring the humanity lost

The blood-filled tides turn
When the enemies use the nightmare
Delivering vengeance
In the name of the fallen
Adding more corpses to the global pile

The conflict gone too far
Both sides wittled down to scraps
Gods step from behind the veil
To seal the creation away
For eternity and beyond

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    It’s probably just me, but I keep reading into everything day seeing ill portents of our future based on the recent election returns. (Apologies if you are a DT supporter, but I am sitting in a dark corner, weeping for humanity right now.) Also, I think you might mean ‘whittle’ above rather than ‘widdle’ which I think is slang for peeing in the British lexicon.

  2. No one writes better action poetry than you. I can almost see the action as I read.

    This really fits that genocide spell. And as kirizar mentioned, the post-election shenanigans.
