Everything Shattered like Diamonds,...

Poetry By: air
Poetry



this came out yesterday while listening to Aselin Debison.
emotions have not been right lately, and this helped some.
I don't think it needs much explaining? but I just hope it feels good to you. Trace introduced me to this young singer that inspired this sort of song like poem.
she had her on her page for a spell and I don't know the exact song that the rhythm belongs to off hand.

I would plant by the wayside

a basket,

of sunshine, and fortune, and rain,

deep as the wise man suggested,

to pave a way into the pain.

*

Please see the depth in the mirror

hold in your breath at the start

let it out slowly for minds sake

but gratitude stems from the heart.

*

Choices were laid out before us

and the choice was to lay down and die

we can't stand to look in the mirror

when fortitude deepens the cry.

*

Certain as much as he stated,

we'd cry a long time before dawn,

passages spoken of sooner,

were no longer laid on the lawn.

*

Creeping our way we surrender,

not knowing to what or to why,

no longer neading the mirror,

the sunshine has opened our eye.

*

Our voices kissed secrets long waiting,

turning them into a song,

And then the voice shattered like diamonds,

turning over the old and the long.

*

Everything shattered like diamonds,

everything into a song,

all that was right didn't matter,

and all that was wrong went along.

*

Everything shattered like diamonds,

all things entered a song,

everything went with the sunshine,

all that was right and was wrong...
