Something is coming
That will put us all to the grave
Everyone’s waiting
But they take it as a day like others
Pretending like it will be a day like others
Maybe if think about it
Its a day like others
You say I‘ll see you later
But will we
Cause everyone says its coming
What will you do
When the time comes
How will you protect your loved ones
Accepting your own death is easy
But what about family
I was inactive for a long time and had no time for poems.
Glowed swelling, glimmering into
Neptune’s fantasies, frenzied
Splintered mad with sweltering gems
Shaking the summer from our hair
Dreams falling like stardust into the ravine
As the earth said “anything can be, anything can be...”

when earthquakes shiver
when thunder drifts down from the hills
all the citizens burn down their home
and rip down the gate to their city

a trickle of rain sends them reeling
sprinting in circles for the end of the world
grabbing on to rubble
in an attempt to keep their balance

it sure feels nice to be hungry
clearing out my drafts

I wish that I could reach out to your heart and hold it.
But your heart is an earthquake.
Just like mine.
I feel lost and I can't use Google maps for mental health.

I'm a stormy landslide
And you're an earthquake
A disheveling tide
Tide that caresses me
While I subside
Subside to heathens
The heathens whose embers forever collide
Collide in the arms of your feigned stride.

To no one in particular.

I built a Greek column
A Tuscan column to be precise
It's about three floors in height

I used materials I didn't know I owned
Shimmering and glistening small white oval pebbles
Flat and fat ones
Sand, best of its kind
Limestone with all its magical properties
And Nautilus shells from the beaches of Callao.

I wish I have built it for looks only
But I did it for me
It fits well between my neck and naval line
For when my earthquakes threaten my core
Cassia Apr 29
Like an earthquake, like thunder
Like a wave or rainstorm
Your words hit me with power
Shook me to my core
Shaped me into something
I wasn't before
It moved me, it changed me
It caused me to soar
But whatever goes up
Will always come down
So as waves crash to the sand
Or a wolf finds a lamb
I fell hard to the ground
And forgot how to stand
Oh, the interesting part.

father says to conquer my fears,
but how can i when losing you is always
at the fault line?

when the earthquake strikes,
the tectonic plates shuffle,
slipping and grinding.

oh father, how can i conquer my fears,
when it's always on the line?

i can't help the thought of losing you,
how can i ever conquer that?
*** love

There's no relationship Richter scale.
No level
One _
      Two ------
             Three ^^^^^
Catastrophe.

There's no stopping these reverberations.
so seek shelter
until love can restart;        
                                    till you can find home

                              in a~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~ ~still vibrating      
                                                                       heart.
