Devastation (Cinquain)

Shell shock

Dawning horror

Crushing swift agony

Expletives release hard grief

Harsh reality dawns

Torrents of tears


In an earlier poem HERE I discussed a huge fight after finding a 300 year old priceless item stolen from my safe.  This poem describes my feelings as the devastation settled into my mind.
