Author William Wright, Jr.:The Passing Torment


It was merely

A passing affair



In its veil

In the waves

Of unburdened sleep


In few

Towering moments

These hopes hold true

Lost beyond

Our tormented age


It was all

But a ghastly

And murderous



Then the world transpired

In gilded

Fiery splendor

William Wright About the Author

 My name is William Lorenzo Wright, Jr. I am the youngest of three children, as well as the only son to two loving and hard-working parents. I am a college student from San Diego California and I hold a deep passion for reading and writing poetry. I was sixteen years old when I first fell in love with poetry and I have been faithful to the craft ever since.
