Quake

The world stopped turning
The lights went out
The winds stopped blowing
My secret is out
If I stand
And speak now
Will I recover it all
Or stem the inevitable
Break my fall
The silence is deafening
For a moment
It yells
Over every tick and murmur
As it briefly casts its spell
And then the deluge follows
As the dams crash
To the ground
And we are overwhelmed
By an avalanche of sound
A tsunami of noise
Of rhythm
Rips from every side
The quake has taken over
The earth it is alive.
