Candy, My Left Foot, and the End of the World.

It was the end of the world

The end of our world.

The moment in time that

We as humans fell.

We fell for gestures that

Were sweet as candy.

And now we stood here

At the end of the world.

The end of the world

In which you could tell

That when I was anxious

My left foot would shake

In quiet anticipation.

But that’s all gone now.

Because it’s the end of the world.

The end of our world.

But we would then go to other worlds

In which we won’t fall for gestures

Sweet as candy.

In which you will never see

My left foot tremble.

In which I will never let

My left foot tremble.

Because my anxiety that I felt with you

Would be gone.

Because this is the end of the world.

Because this is the end of a story

Sweet as candy.

Happiness ends so silently.

Silence.

With no tremble of a left foot.

Because this is the end of the world,

Without an ending that will leave

Us reminiscing.

We touch each other one last time

There is no anxiety, no sweetness.

No happiness, we only have our

Silence.

Because really,

This was the end of the world.

Waves crash.

Eyes close.

Breath stops.

The end of the world.

 

 

This experience of writing about three things that have nothing to do with each other proved to be a great exercise in connecting things. In my case, using poetry. It proved to be simple and connected these things complexly.

  1. I really enjoy your writing style. It really engages the reader and makes the connections in the reading more interesting. You have a very well structured blog page as a whole. It’s easy on the eye.
