unapologetically obsessed
in your dark room
listening to
the black
how it slinks
like a curl of cigarette smoke
inside your mind
dirty words
nicotine stains your soul
drifts of tobacco
remind you

looking for answers
in your mother's eyes
but only a photograph remains
that has no voice
what would she tell?
would she tell?

shut the windows,
but the rumble vibrates
up through the floor
how the ground shrieks
moves so stiffly

the waiting waiting
for this to be memory
these days of fear

I cannot imagine what it is like for you atm, the constant after shocks, the rumbling, and the fear

I pray it will all calm down soon moon maid :(

we have had 3162 aftershocks since Feb 22nd, and probably that many again prior to that from the September earthquake. After Monday I am beginning to ponder on moving, but I can't imagine how that would work, or think where to go.
