-when the world fell-

by helensink

I remember when the world fell between my fingertips like powder

pale grains so isolated that they clung to the sharp creases of my palms

like a lifeline,

holding, holding on tight

holding, holding on tight as I watched the destruction and tried not to cry

I remember when I was destruction itself

fire turning everything to rust

and I wondered how one blink beneath angry lashes

turned all to ashes, how clammy palms turned empires

turned all to ashes, how clammy palms turned empires to dust

and I, on quaking feet was all that remained

and I, on quaking feet was all that remained after the explosion

I remember the heat, the thrill of the kill

as if liquid venom seeped in my veins

I knew I would be forever stained

I knew I would be forever stained by what I had done

But I admit I liked the power to choose

who lived and who died But I admit I liked the power to choose...

The beach is empty now, as I remember my crimes

the rubble of an entire sandcastle kingdom

bleeds beneath my sunscorched feet

a golden powder of my glistening triumph

c r u s h e d

But then the tide comes in and flattens the sand into a blank slate

But then the tide comes in and flattens the sand into a blank slate, my murder erased in cold froth

But then the tide comes in and flattens the sand into a blank slate, my murder erased in cold froth, I watch and wait.

Where was I?

I stare along the plain and see so many tiny empires scattered around,

lives for me to destroy until all that remains

are grains of sand...

I get ready to jump

I get ready to jump on her powdery, vulnerable creation...
