Sometimes I think they see it too,
in the dust markings on a bookshelf
or the slight angle of a painting.

Sometimes I want to ask them,
if they feel it in the air
or the earth beneath their feet.

Sometimes I see it in their faces,
the crooked temper of a sorry smile
or a glint of fire behind a pupil.

Sometimes the earth trembles,
when their laughs roar
and cries cross oceans.

Sometimes I think the world is ending,

but only when I'm alone.

I like the emotion and the pattern you incorporate into this, you've done well! Good job, it is a very relatable poem.
