I can feel the rumbling of dirt,
And can hear the hum of the sand.

I can see the waves herding near us.
Under your skin the rivers are just as wild.

There was an Earthquake,

a magnitude of eight, they said.

All I can feel is the heat of iron,
deep inside your core,
but colder and colder I became;

Condensation on my lip.

I can see the smolder of the sky,
But all I can think is,
How the dirt dappled on my arms,
Resembles the colour of your eyes.
