Fractured Universe

Written by: Ian Petch

Soulful, refracted replies
Strike the sun; reflect in my eyes
The layers of pain punished within
Judgement ends, just to begin

Cycle through the spiralling keys
Unlock the doors that tragedy needs
Watch the world gather in force
The mirror’s arms reach for my cause

Held too close, by aching demand
Fickle lies become mountains of sand
Held too close, we turn to dust
Spread upon the truth we encrust

Soulful, refracted denial
Strikes the moon; reflecting the miles
I walked through pain, all in my mind
The judgement ends, so I can find

The truth of self, beyond this world
Where shadows fade and everything’s heard
The truth of all, within my heart
Where light now grows and the universe starts
