END

by Karen

Swirls of grey

Rise from the scorched earth

Wrapping themselves

Around me

In their ruthless

                     Embrace

Tighter

They get

Tighter

          And

Tighter

          Still

Plunging down

My sweat-filled brow

Invading

My cavernous mouth

AS

I

Gasp

For

Breath

Bringing me to my

         Knees

A forced apology

For a world gone mad

And what is left?

Smoke and ashes
