In The Night
Epileptic seizure of the earth.
The darkness hides its secrets,
but magnifies our terror.
Like a silent witness crouching in the darkness,
it catches us by surprise.
Hypnotised by fear.
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.
Convinced mother earth was calling our number.
Time forever frozen in our cities ticking tower.
A collective picture montage imprinted in my mind.
Walls dancing, roads buckling.
The dooms day roar of life as we know it changing.
Standing helplessly beneath the framed entrance.
Forced against my will to watch fear etched on the faces of my loved ones.
The heartless matriarch of nature has unleashed her caustic fury.
