CD11 poem


I staked my life
On the rising of the sun

Running full on eastbound
Winds and waters unnoticed
The faster to see it

Breath heaving, heart pounding
I dove, elated, into the blaze

Love spread
Unstoppable in the fire

Together we rose
The sun and I, suspended
Into the purest sky

When the firmament began to tilt
I struggled to hold on
To what couldn’t be held

The sun sizzled and cracked.
The world in ash
Went black

Existence only remained
Without fire or

Like smoke
