Extinguish

Dramatic sounds,
united voice,
shakes thoughts around,
commands a choice,
assurance pounds,
vibrates white noise,
falls to the ground,
then regains poise.

Dramatic views,
insightful eyes.
Perceptions choose
to expose lies.
Covers the news,
as stories fly,
uncovers clues,
raw truth implied.

Dramatic taste,
every mouth craves,
The greatest waste,
enemies gave.
Gasoline baste,
set to enslave.
Living in haste,
digs shallow grave.

Dramatic touch,
caresses deep.
Grips to then clutch,
tries hard to keep.
A bit too much,
hills form too steep.
Calms rapid rush,
so minds could sleep.

Dramatic scents,
linger inside.
Chaos ferments,
a troubled mind.
Will not consent,
while being kind,
Embrace present,
sorrows declined.

Dramatic life
abandoned past.
Prevented strife,
that did not last.
Turmoil was knifed,
calmed ever fast.
peacefulness rife,
enjoyed contrast.
