This isn't necessarily gonna turn into a hobby/habit for me, it's only for English class, but please leave comments and let me know how to improve should I have to do another one.
"The Point of No Return"
A dark cloud looms over the city
Masking whatever beauty it once possessed.
Cries for help ring out like gunshots
While red and blue lights illuminate the night.
The buildings and streets look normal during the day
A porcelain façade fractured after dusk.
The surrounding rivers are murky
Concealing the unknowns of the depths –
Perhaps they conceal reminders of the past,
Or perhaps they conceal things consumed by the present.
I continue to peer out of my broken window
Shattered like our previous hopes and dreams of the future.
It is easy to answer “How?”
But not as easy to answer “Why?”
There is an oasis in the distance
Untouched by the devastation that plagued us
Lush, green, full of life
The perfect victim
For a monster that has long since reached
The point of no return.
