Earthquakes

Can you feel the shaking,
the crumbling of the earth
beneath your feet,
surrounding your skin,
hovering at the edge of broken?

It’s there,
below my surface,
shuddering like nightmares
and frozen like how we want time.

I’m cracking
and can’t stand much longer.
My feet ache
and so does my brain
because I can’t quite see the world
without the reverberation
of these moments
sinking into my bones.
