I'mmortal - Poem by Alex Angelov

In a blink everything you know will change
In a breath everyone you know will die.
In a flinch every glass you love is broken
In a shout every swear word that you know is spoken
In a tear every sacred feeling that you own is bursting
In a drop of blood every life you ever lived is over
In a hit every bone of yours is broken
In a heartbeat every drop of poison is awakened
In a wrinkle every year of yours is over
In a fall you live your most sincere moments
In my eyes you all are dead
and moving like dark shadows
Flowing in the air like leaves
Every thunder is a cry of angels
Cursing you for rupturing the heavens
With your cursed eyes
Empty, with spikes growing out of the nerves that had to be windows, but now are keys to every door in hell.
And a saviour walks with his feet a meter underground, walking like you used to walk in water, but your feet are burning now, and his are rotting, but he is walking like you used to run in every nightmare. Every finish line is fading a step at a time and every step feels like walking backwards. Giving up he dreams of but every finish line is the morphine that he needs. But he will one day cross the finish line and every single cross will break and he will fly with wings - air crossbred with lighting, and he will break the gates of hell and make love with every demon and defeat every disease and you will not be saved. He was not the saviour of you. He saved...
