The Eye Before The Eye

waiting for destruction is not an easy thing
knowledge of the destructive capacity of the beast is no barrier to worry or fear
one can only try to be prepared

this is the eye before the eye
the moment when the world pauses like a snapshot of what will never be the same

even the known is unknown
and we are reminded that we are not the most powerful on this planet

but what of those who suffer without foreknowledge
in storms of war and pestilence
whose passings are without remembrance or name
a dark line across the newspaper column
a few words
like these you read
as we wait here
within
the eye before
the eye
