Nefarious: A Nonet*

The world is slowly dying, f-a-d-i-n-g
as grief’s black smoke covers beings,
billions soul d-i-e-s unwilling,
caused by all and nothing,
maybe humans just
love killing ‘til
earth ends with
nothing,
none.

The Believer

The Believer: A Nonet*

I reached the dead end called neverwhere
as my mind look for your traces.
My eyes didn’t see you go,
ears haven’t heard your voice,
skin haven’t felt you,
only my heart
believes that
you are
true.
