No Need

The machines came knocking
we answered their call
handing over the world
giving them control
is it really so shocking
that they don't need us at all...

Becoming Earth

Some of those tears
dried and salty traces
across my face
are a mask for my stupor

time and aging bones
beyond the dawn
beneath the grave
waiting to become earth

leaving behind mourners
we just fleeting memories

Carry On

my face and body floated
aimlessly for eons
tattering and knocking
at themselves
friends passed through me
on their firey journey home
growing with anticipation
anguised to become
looking to my father
the sun
contorted explosions
threw me together
flames and fires
then rains and seas
those days behind me
seem like an eternity
yet, just a blink of an eye
here then gone
the universe carries on

we will be consumed by our creations
lost within it
