This is the Way the World Ends.

With desperate prayers
And trembling hands,
This is the way the world ends.

See the children huddled
Against their mothers' shaking sides,
See how they sit stock-still,
Eyes wide in shock and terror

With war cries
And bloody fields,
This is the way the world ends. 

Look to the battlegrounds,
Look to the trenches.
Invisible to our eyes, 
Angels cradle their still bodies

With bowed heads
And arms carrying the dead,
This is the way the world ends.

And listen
Listen.
Hear their sobs of hopelessness,
Hear the screams of anguish

For with heavy hearts
And dead friends
They finally see
This is the way the world ends.

    Thanks, Izzy! I'm glad you like it so much, NightReader. Thanks! Hmm... sometimes they do. It sorta depends. I think for lighter emotions, yes. I don't know about heavier emotions, although I would say that if I'm trying to portray an emotion I don't generally feel or write darker poetry, it does sometimes make me feel different at least at the time of writing it.

    I love it!
    (PS just asking as someone who excels at writing dark poetry, did your emotions at the time of writing effect the poetry? For me the do, the sadder I am the darker my poetry.)
