Giant balls of fire
Lit up the ebony sky
Terrorizing all
Houses left and right
Set ablaze heavenly flames
Nowhere safe to hide
Men women screaming
On the road to oblivion
Frozen where they were
Thousand years later
From ash mountains uncovered
Death masks now revealed

Earlier this year, my wife and I visited Pompeii. We saw the ruins and the people who perished but were preserved in the moment of their deaths. That inspired this poem.
