Crimson Sun

crimson sun
pale orange light
pierces and echoes
spreads like a virus
I'm surrounded
wrapped in color
rose tinted air
encapsulating and engulfing
hazy sky
surrounds faux landscapes
fires rage far beyond
reach my eyes and burn
I can hear myself breathing
I close the window to breath
I hide to breathe the air inside
nature no longer safe
I escape
I lay down and watch the red crawl along the wall until the walls return to white
it falls below the great mountain and into the sea
it dies a slow death and returns each morning to crawl along my walls
