  • Mood:

echo hollow in the soul

silence squeezes the air
swiftly, softly
not a breath can escape
light flashes bright
blinding and harsh
washing out the distance
is the world fading
retreating to the heavens
lifting up to the unknown
is the world crashing
falling all around
crushing any flicker of life
do we let go
let the world do its deeds
undaunted by sorrows
do we fight
pound the world
into our very own vision
silence is the light
the path to the answer
even as the soundless screams
echo hollow in the soul...

ETA: I'm trying to move my photo files from my computer to an external drive before this thing dies.  And I shall be quite sad if it does die.  I think I said that already.  LOL!  Anyhoo, must work on that.  Dear me.
