Invisible Steps - Poem by Velvet Astraea Dido

silence around me
but chaos in my head
my thoughts are running
a hundread miles in a second.

then a crash passed by
growling hissing metal
swishing, flattening the sky
leaving marks of stray bullets behind.

the stillness was broke
a slight spank fom the cold
chime drops tinkering
then back to quiet it seem.

hours gone endless
my mind walked to cairo and back
forcing myself to move
but my being stayed aback.

now the echo from across lands
whispers carried by the wind
above me was scorching
beyond me was heat.

where is my senses taking me?
a flat coast and desert maybe
a million faces leaving
their shadows dissolve to nothing.

the pervading medley of my repose
i relish with anxiety
whats beyond these brick walls
whats beyond these mediocrity

will you take me away
from this toruosity?
my inane impulse -
now numb.
now slits.
now rubbles.
