Requiem for Unity

 

Once, and then darkness.

Ebony tendrils wending unseen,

Coarse-woven, knotted within the breathing tapestry.

Vivid colors betwixt dull decay,

Fabric unraveling inexorably,

Obscured by the moment,

Whilst brittle threads rain steadily,

Crimson droplets o’er a flower-strewn meadow.

Once, and two stars danced; circling through eternity,

Vying to light the nighttime sky.

Column of passion-colored flame

Rending heaven and earth.

Once, and then darkness.
