Vanish

the red silk tatters whip around the skin I used to know
you stand illumined by the lightning’s fire
the silhouette does not betray which way you go
are you walking towards me or away
from the shadows I can hear the insects as I walk
mocking me from safely out of reach
the rainfall burns me as it falls from tattered sky
I call to you my voice lost in the storm

wait

jagged memories loom overhead and cut our feet
our blood mixes with the mud and shale
the sky churns angrily the storm encircles us
and watches with its one all-seeing eye
and as the world breaks up and crumbles into dust
devoured by water wind and rain
just as the planets fall you turn to me at last
I reach out to you my fingers curl through smoke
