#100WW – Paris tears


A silent flame quiets the world

This city of lights now darkened in fresh ash

Tales colored in glass melt to their conclusion

History ends by an unholy spark

Parisians mourn the tumbling of constructed beauty

This day, that makes even the gargoyles weep from hardened eyes
