The earth shattered

Then suddenly rolled away

Leaving her lifeless body

In ruin and decay

A tsunami came

And swept her out to sea

Leaving her to drown

In a deluge of murmured pleas

An inferno of flames

Caught her off guard

Leaving her breathless

Without any regard

Earthquakes erupted

And the world was swallowed whole

Leaving her shaken

In a place now dark and cold

Time soon left

Whirling the galaxy into a spin

Leaving her ruptured

From the chaos felt within
