Life, Writing

What’s Left In Between

The earth shakes from under me. Every breath

is followed by lightening. Electrifying my heart, igniting

the fuel from my eyes. Flames of heartbreak shade our world.

A world once so bright, so full of promise.


Promises made, promises broken. In silence, everything is said.

Thrown in the air to swallow us both in a cloud of thunder.

You speak but say nothing. I listen but nothing reaches

my curious heart. In our world of natural disasters,

fingertips meet, sun shines through. With piercing

cries of joy, lightening subsides, thunder sleeps.

Words are spoken but there’s no one left to hear.
