365 Day Photo Challenge: A Zombie Wakes, Day 14

I rose to an infinite sky,
bits of light poked through every hole
I watched the darkness roll in like a storm
the ground was cold and solid
I think it had just rained

There were dead golden leaves
already giving up their flesh
to the ground
I felt only the absence of myself
the weight was gone
only the questions
tomorrow, yesterday lingered on

Winter, I heard gunshots in the distance
but I felt no fear
the news in rooms in houses
on the block, buzzed with distraction
I rose out of that hole
Thirsting to be

It had been days since I had awoken
with a light in my eyes
and now the darkness expelled all doubt
I watched stars shooting down from heavens
each spoke like embers in a fire
I was at peace having chosen to walk the earth
awake, Alive, giving up all of the previous self
That now I can barely describe….
