you glance back at what you created
the tower taller and nearer
it shines in the sun and glows in the dark
it’s where the fire began with a spark

you whistle a tune and some come running
smiling their smiles and dancing to your tune
but I do neither and turn my back
picking up speed and tightening the slack

you call for me, but I can’t hear
a white noise hums inside my head
what was true and built to last
shatters like many shards of glass

    Dang. Thee Most INTESIVE READ IN A LONG. LONG WHILE. excellent, I have a poem called "fairytale Prison" with the mention of shards but nowhere compares to your usage in my eyes. THANK YOU for sharing, Lucinda re: Journey
