Fiery Cycle (The Covid Series)

Fiery Cycle (The Covid Series)

A Poem by Joshua777
"

Written August 1, 2020 | A vicious cycle is among us, when will you wake up?

"

‘wake up!’

‘wake up, please!’

‘wa-- *coughs* wake up!’

‘p-p-please…’

 

Do you hear that?

What is that voice?

I drudge forward,

Unphased by the warm air.

 

A growing numbness falls upon me,

A growing comfort of the warm air,

It is not so bad anymore.

 

I had not realized, I walked through thriving flames of change,

The damage left scars; will they heal fast enough?

 

‘wake…. u-u-up’

My eyes open…

‘wake…. u-u-up’

My eyes open…

‘wake…. u-u-up’

My eyes open,, a faint smell of burning flesh pervades the room.

I started writing poetry at 14 inside an ‘Intro to Poetry’ class which turned out to be less fun because of the restraints of the assignments, so poetry fell away from me soon after. A .. more..
