Dread

While you did not speak
A thousand deaths
Reflected
In those eyes

Feeling them
Cold envelopes
My heart
I am filled with dread

But it sublimates
Into arrogance
As unspeaking eyes
Look through the mirror

Death comes rapidly
Species after species
Individuals after individuals
Play after play
Life after life
We take away

Kill! I do not care
Me! Always first
Our blank stares
For you, fleeting cares
Blind consciences
Care without care

(A poem about the death of nature, and our lack of care)
