A new divide I created within, to make sense of the infinite futility that lies inside…

After The Storm

Thunder rumbled in
Lightning cracked the earth
The rains washed away
All that we built on the surface
Until all that remained
Was just a little isle
Barely enough for us to survive

I held you close
A shelter from the storm
While the emptiness consumed
All we couldn’t face alone
Little by little
The tides pushed harder
My world slipped out of place
As you slipped through my fingers
I tried to hold on
But my weakness became stronger
I had to give in
To the emptiness I surrendered

The sun shone later
Failing to light a bleaker world
Blistering all sense of purpose
To remind what was taken

I have passed many a season
Staring at empty horizons
Our memories setting like the sun
I will wait for you
As the skies turn shades darker
Until I am all but consumed
Yes I will wait for you
Until forever

  1. Back with a bang, aren’t you?

    “I tried to hold on
    But my weakness became stronger
    I had to give in
    To the emptiness I surrendered”

    I *loved* that bit. The rain did some good, it inspired a post out of you.

  4. I agree with Sabby on the “back with a bang”!

    :I have passed many a season
    Staring at empty horizons
    Our memories setting like the sun
    I will wait for you
    As the skies turn shades darker
    Until I am all but consumed
    Yes I will wait for you
    Until forever:

    That was my favourite verse.

    A pleasure as always, oh Unsilent One 🙂 :-*
