AN EARTHQUAKE OCCURRED

by W. Mahlon Purdin

The world split in two.
Everything fell from the sky.
I was running for you.
There was nothing to do but die.

Every dream we shared
Our hopes imploding
No time to be scared
With the world exploding.

Then there was no sound
Then there was no light
Threads of life unwound
No wrong no right.

The world split in two.
Everything fell from the sky.
I was running for you.
There was nothing to do but die.

I'm assuming this has to do with the recent earthquake. My heart goes out to all those affected.

A very fine write and it certainly deserves POTD.

Congrats on POTD!

These rhymes seem a little hackneyed and forced.
