Trudging, lurching, walking,
Out from the suffocating, endless darkness,
Into the suffocating, endless darkness.
The eyes reflect nothing
Except ghosts of memories
Drifting past,
Rushing fast:
Grass, lush and green.
Worn boots crush underfoot
Long dead fields.
Flowers, vibrant reds and blues.
Worn boots crush underfoot
Faded, petaled corpses.
Fences, neat and straight and pure white.
Worn boots crush underfoot
Splintered, chipped gray planks.
A House, of red brick and paned windows.
Worn boots crush underfoot
Dry baked disintegration and crystalline shards.
Trudging, lurching, walking
Through an Earth long dead,
Through an endless night,
Abandoned by the stars.
