My Apocalypse

You and Her

By Poppy the PoetPublished 4 months ago 1 min read
My Apocalypse
Photo by zelle duda on Unsplash

I’m dressed in

Satin and tulle and

You’re wearing thoughts of her

Like it’s your favourite cologne


The world is ending

All over again but this time

I know it will start anew tomorrow

I also know that world

Will be absent of you

But not memories

Of your voice


This apocalypse

Has no fireworks

No ash covered ground

Just you and her and

The distance between

Your hand and my heart


You’re dressed in a tie

And I’m wearing a

Crushed heart on my sleeve

It’s the only reminder that

Your hand once held it
