Everything Shattered like Diamonds,...

Poetry By: air

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...
