the earth is trembling.

the grass is burning.

yet here i lie

unscathed by the shakes and fire

in a calm medow.

but then you look closer.

my skin you took for being pale

is drained of everything

every emotion

every feeling.


when you see me

my blank face

the face you have given me

you have water in you hands.

and a car at your feet

you can save me from the fire

you can save me from the shakes

but you rip your gaze away from my body

i lay there, sensing your momentary presence

i can feel the water near me

i can hear the rumble of the engine

i hear you

i want you

but you still leave.

never to return

and then, i slip

back into my apocalypse
