On my own apocalypse

If silk could melt
to drip down arms and goosebumped legs
in scarlet rivers, serpentine,
it seems only right
that the sky should burn as well.
Like roses heaped upon a stage,
cloaked in tumultuous applause,
the end will fall in exultation.
Shall we stand upon the shore
and taste the salt upon our lips,
basking in the last breezes
before the Breaking?
These last days are a ball,
a promenade of bliss,
sublime devastation,
a eulogy of memory.
Shiva, ever the gentleman,
asks for one last dance.

Thid world is so far gone that the vest thing for it would be an end, and therefore, a new beginning.  I, for one, will celebrate the "sublime devastation" (awesome phrase, btw. Sounds like it could be the name of a hardcore band or something).

I love how the light sets her umbrella on fire and the overall composition. She is the center with waves or circular directions around her. Great work!

And you should write more like this, it's beautiful and the imagery is just plain awesome, just thinking of the sky burning but dancing with someone right as it all happens. Awesome!
