 Living in the End Times

Crystal Rose

Poetry

This poem reflects feelings from the pandemic as words from my heart that have been translated through my head.

Living in the End Times 

 

 

 

A virus  
A virus has torn the world open 
As mother earth has bled  
We now bleed  
Unable to touch 
             To feel 
The warmth of a loved one’s affection

This chaos, undoing, and panic  
No evidence of light  
At the end of our tunnel 
But      
       Hold on 
Have you held yourself tightly? 
Or did you ignore the screaming 
That sits 

     Deep 

         Deep 

             Down

Loneliness as you quarantine

Doesn’t have to be  
At the forefront of your mind

Stretch,  

    breathe

and bathe  
Release what the media 
Has fed you for dinner 
Take caution 
        Choose love 
Take caution 
        Choose light 
Sit with yourself in the quiet  
For the veil will uncover itself soon
