a life in dreams

a distant looming mushroom cloud
 a scraping from the other room
  her looking at me 'cross the floor
   the feel of lips against mine pressed
    embarrassment and laughter reigns
     a terror calling in the night
    to die and no one even care
   a different kind of house and life
  too late keep my child from harm
 to go back when they were alive
to know I have no more a use
