In a demolished forest,
Far away from the nearest city,
And hidden in the cracks of titans,
Of sediment and fossils,
A place unremembered and absent,
We were once alone.
In a treacherous rain,
Which fell in a steady gaze,
Smudging a world that whirled
And rushed in fragile orbit,
Around and around the daystar,
In our desolation, we were together.
In a brilliant and tragic sea,
That heaved with brackish regret,
And ebbed in a lumbering quest
Of distant and unwavering steppes,
With miles of infinite azure horizons,
Beyond the oblivion, we were connected.
Illuminated in the ghostly lunar luster,
Far below Orion and the stellar spires,
Amid the eroded rocks and matter,
With nothing but the smoke,
And tempests of a raging, profound solitude,
We were, for a moment, boundless.
