    Climactic changes,
    are ever present with each
    falling leaf and twig.
    "Boku wa yandere desu ka?! More like, Ich kann der geh! Jah?"

    A warm interior
    the home in which i live
    A family resides

    A family re-sides
    Their home, its walls demolishéd;
    The tempest conquers all.

    The tempest conquers
    all who try to subvert it.
    Give in to chaos.

    Actually, now I look at it, there's actually one extra syllable in every line! How on Earth did I manage that?!

    It depends how you pronounce certain words...

    A fam'ly re-sides
    Their home, it's walls de'mo'lished;
    The tempest conquers all..

    Yeah, you got the last line wrong but I, self-confessed pedant, couldn't leave it alone and inadvertently laid out food for a haiku-structure-obsessed monster . Stop it, that way multiple madnesses lie. Of course, if you wanted to return the favour you could now send me crazy by continually posting mistakes in structured poetry threads whenever I'm online .
