there’s beauty in explosions
as the remnants spiral about
lighting up glimpses of us in the fallout..
my heart hits the ground
the energy that bound us
is out of this realm..
Unique - all its’ own
a life force unknown..
it won’t be contained
once let out
nothing remains..
a love is spiritually awakened
nuclear in its’ quest
causing such unrest..
radioactive ashes cascading about
setting my heart ablaze..
the intensity inflecting changes that
will follow me from hours to years..
this outburst sends shock waves
pulsating against my skin
with a magnitude that sears and shapes the core of my soul..

  • Love is like that and a lot more, and when you’ve found your soulmate, you want nothing more than to explode in pieces for them. Love does make one radioactive, I suppose. Beautifully penned again, friend. More power to you. 🙂

  • A great writer wrote a book written in 1957 by Nevil Shute. Called “On the beach”. If you read the last 12 pages of this amazing books. (Also a movie.) He described the last days after the weapons slowly killed everyone. The last 12 pages. The officer gave his baby the pill, he gave his wife the pill and he poured a drink and sat alone. He took the pill. The pill was given to the last people. Better a quick death, not a slow one.
    “This is the way the world ends This is the way the world ends This is the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper.”
    Thank you for sharing the powerful and worthwhile poem dear lamarr.
