Zombie

The sun is bright and harsh

Searing through the vast sky

Onto deserted roads

And empty boulevards that once held ringing laughter.

Unkempt plants with over grown weeds

Twist around the barbed fences.

Silhouettes of empty chairs are seen

Through murky windows, dark and dusty.

The sound of loneliness blares through the silence

And the scent of fear

Hangs like a thick fog.

We hide under rocks and in dark spaces

And drift through it all like soulless beings,

Searching something to hold on to

As the world vaporizes into nothingness with each passing moment.

We search for that ounce of hope

To feel something again

And not just numbness piercing our hearts.

We search amidst this fleeting life

For that ounce of hope-

The hope that humanity lives on,

A glimmer of hope

To just feel human once again.

Want to listen to this ?

    It does seem like we are sinking away or should I say salted away due to these unusual years.
