Erik's ApocalypseErik passed beneath the dark clouds that stretched to the horizon, he'd seen plenty of storms before. But this one was different, even the air felt different, and it wasn't just because he was high either.
A child like voice cried inside his matured head 'I want to go home!' It wasn't the small countryside house he was thinking of or even the admirable family house he had grown up in. It was his mother's arms. Best known as 'the warmest, safest, greatest place in the world.'
She had died when Erik was 7 but even almost 80 years later at the grand old age of 86, high and staring up at clouds that seemed to be raining fire (surely a side effect of the drugs) he felt just as he had when he was just starting school, when he was being bullied.
Everything was wrong, he felt tiny and scared and the way to fix it - to run to his mum, berry his face in her belly and wrap his arms around her, her warmth would protect him, even from the end of the world.
And unlike all the times he had longed for
mechanici want to kiss every aching wound you have,
bandage your heart every time it bleeds,
and patch up your mind over and over
because not a single tear deserves to fall
from your brandy-drenched eyes
but this dripping heart of mine can only feel
and the healing honey words it flames get caught
in the back of my throat and on the roof of my mouth
so i only have these passionate guttural cries
to tell you that i care all too much
and in order to fix you up again,
i would need to tear myself to tatters
and trade all of my working parts
for your leftover, fading pieces
but i just haven’t figured out how.
