Everything is obliterated, all but the silenced lonesome

My mind emerges from the deepest crevasses of my soul, my tears from grief

Developing into oceans, yet I forgot how to swim

There was no I before, just the calming sound of their voices

There was no home, just the bricks swallowed by the diluted grounds

Shakes, still shakes, some state of mind I am in

Some earthquake this has caused

And like a leaf in the wind, I am slowly stepped on

The world is gone


Illuminating lights remain to stay

It is here, where a serenity has been recovered with in

Where there was once an I, with a they

Some silenced lonesome I am in
And now, I can fade into the unknown

Sinking into the tears I have wept for my dying heart

For now, I have felt it all


-Chloe Aldecoa
