Panic Attack-The Earthquake 1

I never saw it coming.

I turned cold

and sick.

The avalanche, rumbling death,

growing.

The rumbling, growing death.

When the earth shakes,

there is nowhere to hide

and nothing is safe.

When your home shakes,

you can find stronger land.

When the land shakes,

there is nothing to find.

I didn’t know my beliefs weren’t of bedrock.

I didn’t know my land could be shaken.

I didn’t know I could lose everything

and still be alive without a scar on my body.

I didn’t know there was such destruction available,

and lurking.

Behind every breath, the earthquake waited

Behind every breath, the earthquake waited
