Breathless

view-2417156_960_720

The window swung open

Not a breath of wind in the stale air

And golden tresses cascaded

Over ivory shoulders cold and bare

 

Her thoughts were deeply rooted

In the splash of blue of her faraway stare

And her heart stood there broken

Lost in a dream which was far from there

 

The crash of waves interrupted

Her lonely despairing thoughts

And her mind fought to refocus

On what the new day had brought

 

But at last her mental clarity

Betrayed her once more

As she stumbled and fell dead

Against the unconcerned floor

Chaos

woman-1897165_960_720

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
