Comfort Contradiction

Percy Perez

Pale fire blue,

Splintered roses,

Changing hues.


Glass metal embers,

Stolen heartbeats,

Frozen tempers.


Dulled glowing shadows.

Blind dust swirls.

Melted sugar meadows.


Brittle honey, bittersweet dance.


Blazing aura empty.

Secret mistakes, truths.

Blacklight mystic tempting.


Simple silence,

Tearing outrage,

Quiet, meaningless.


Loveless flowers,

Endless discord,

Falling towers,


Haven't we been here before?

Percy Perez is seventeen years old and attends Braden River High School.
