Torn Apart

Radioactive blossoms,
shifting plates
and 15 meter waves
leave a path
of death and destruction,
taking and changing
the people who live—
lived there.

have collapsed around
the heads
of those unable
to escape,
the victims
who never knew what
was coming.

Water washes over
the ruins
and shells
of people and
their livelihoods,
this metropolis
off the maps.

Wrapped bodies
of students and 
lie on the 
floor of a gymnasium,
too many dead
for those alive
to take care of.

Families separated
never to see each other
again as a whole;
they are torn apart
like the country.
