the atmosphere is filled with haunting motionlessness,

an intangible melancholy adorned by a beauty and painful fragility,

yet, a silent strength.

the deep sadness and disquieting peace,

accompanied by a communal living between beauty and sorrow;

quietude and violence;

memory and pain.

 

a wound on the body and memory.

a profound rupture

attacking the self from the outside,

impacting its surface and tearing its skin.

uncertain

the earth above collapses.
