apocalypse

Heaving heavy breaths of hot air 


Taking in the task before me


The gods are grinning with a ghastly stare


The scorched sky opens up sending fists of thunder and earth upon us


The wispy hair of the mother goddess, now a tangled tortured mess


This Herculean hero knows what he must do


His fate, his destiny 


Meaning and purpose drive him now


Flowing through his heart


Out of his chrysalis the butterfly emerges 


Metamorphosis complete


He leaps


Flying, falling, its all the same


Up is down and down is onwards


Toward my vision so close and so far


These wings of faith keep me on the path


Closer to the face her stare is blinding and her scream is deafening


Twisting, twirling tunnels I travel through 


Faster I fall


Finally her nose touches mine and we embrace


Flash!


Ashes to ashes


Dust to dust 


The angry goddesses is tamed 


In the end faith and love conquer all


The earth is safe, for a time at least


Peace is released from the grip of anguish and the butterfly is reborn


Free to fly flower to flower drinking the nectar and dew


The sun rises and the cycle starts anew.
