Shooting stars penetrate the midnight sky There is an unexplainable wonder that space fills inside An astonishing sight unveils itself before my eyes Not only from the stars, but from the night against the light The achingly hollow cold—the marrow of my delight Has slipped ever so soundly in my soul The fog blankets the ground and reaches our feet I feel the chilliness taking its toll The ground shakes violently, perturbing uneasy life And we witness the lightning flaring up the heavens We see bodies collide in the distance. . . Tons and tons of fear choke us all And I can only watch the sky As the innocent souls wither and die I marvel at both natures—fellow man and creation Muttering to myself nightmares of veracity My eyes cradle the beauty left in the scene It blows away everything once explained I continue to shield myself from the light above The stars can only pour over me for split moments As my abjuration seeps like blood into the reveling soil Shattering like glass Piercing us like arrows February 20, 2013 A collab with my brother David (:
