Everything Ended

Everything ended

And then it was quiet

The dust settled into the cracks

Fine particles of disbelief

Torn pieces of votes

Ripped in disgust

The shuffling of shoes fading into

Half-forgotten echoes.

A gentle breeze

Made of collected sighs

And the faint splashes of tears

It was like the air after

Thunder and lightning

Tore a hole of discharge

Vacant and desolate

The bush after a fire

Lots of burnt trunks

And smoking branches

And no hint of regeneration

A dead starting point.
