Carbon and Stardust


The dull, persistent voice gnaws,
As a hollow thought, a consuming
Essence, resonating off the arches,
Bounding through the hallways,
A misery of inadequacy,
Escaping as a thin mist,
Of lucid honesty,
As a stone wills for a mountain,
Yet, is weighted by the river,
Reserved to be only shaped smooth,
By the pounding of the opal rapids,
Archived amongst the cold bedrock,
Lost between the narrows,
In the depths of the universe,
Swirled with violet, azure and amber,
And filled with the extraordinary,
And I, only a minute speck of stardust.
