I saw you in the underworld when the earth collapsed

The incendiary skies burned bright;
Burning
And I saw you beneath its scorching glare
Standing by the banks of the river Styx
Your supple skin marred and stained
By soot and mud from below your feet
And burnmarks;
I know not where you got them

I called your name
Shouted it
Screamed it
But you did not hear me
You did not listen
Simply stared off into the distance
Body glowing, body burning
World glowing, world burning
Burning
Flaming
Ablaze.

(I never saw you again)
