Collapse short poem

Photo by Bert Kaufmann


When I close my eyes
Everything tumbles down.
All that I know,
All that I love and cherish,
In seconds, turns to dust.
A bleak vision of what may come…

All I can do is sit
And weep for my lost world.
Everything is gone in a flash.
I’m all alone…
Frightened.

When I open my eyes,
Everything returns.
But still I fear that soon,
I won’t need to close them…

My muse is like an excitable dog. It catches sight of totally random things and starts yapping and running around and wagging its tail and WILL NOT STOP until I write a poem about it.My poetry is sometimes based on personal experience and sometimes on other things. Aside from that, I enjoy video games (My favourite game series is Mass Effect) and the popular television show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
