Hitting like an earthquake

Tossing buildings around like personal play toys

Causing panic and sorrow

The source of it all.

 

Setting the path for the sweeping tsunami

Coming in and forging through the piles of corpses

Washing away the years of nothing

Bringing in a clean slate

 

Buildings are nothing but rubble in the breeze

Sculptors made by the land

Colored red, by the deaths of thousands

If only to increase the amount of sorrow filling the cup.

 

Only to be buried in the present

By a force untold, leaving only fire and brimstone

Ashes being blown by the the wind like leaves in the winter

Piling up like snow falls.

 

Encasing the land in a black coffin

Until the spring rains come

Washing it all away

Into the oblivion.
