To go away.

I had a dream last night
I was looking at the far side of the plain
There was a tree with a strange shape.
Uncomfortable.
A path described in the short grass led to the other side of the horizon.
Towards the smoke, the flashes
Time kept moving forward and didn’t let me breathe.
Someone was screaming, crying
I didn’t want to look
I had to keep walking, I knew
But my feet were heavy
My heart crushed
The shadow upright in the sky wanted to touch the clouds
Black arms, columns of burnt wings
And the end of all things
It was a dream, I know
Did I live it anyway?
Will I ever reach that plain?
What will I do then?
Crying won’t solve it
Running won’t fix it
And my light will fade.

Hold me
Don’t let go of me
I don’t want to go, please…
One more day
One more minute
One second
Before the end of everything
Of the stars
Of the galaxies
Of memories
Until the surface of all things change
And nothing can be recognized
Will I ever see you again?
Once I let go of your hand
Because I can’t ask you to stay
To go away
I can’t do anything
And it kills me.
