Deceiving creation

You told me there would be something to look at. When I couldn't see anything I looked back, and saw that you had disappeared too.

Through that empty vessel we heard a thousand blended notes.
We saw the light being lured away by the looming black creature everyone feared.
We saw the leaves fall into your palm with dew drops on them, only to dissolve in seconds.
We saw days go by and mistakes being repeated unintentionally.
We heard the cries of winter, before silence engulfed the city which is now barren land.
We saw humanity shiver in front of turbines and engines.
We saw what man made out of man.

but they saw it too.
