Before I Shattered (poetry)


Self made soulless abstraction

Fighting with vigor but no heart
All I want is to hear something that makes me sad
All I want is something that makes me smile, a smile without care
To feel
Endless control, I will stare the devil in the eye
I will stare god in the eye
A force of nature, but not by choice
An immovable statue
Solid granite in an ethereal world
Watching all these fragile dancers
Splashes of color, mutable and transient
Let us look at each other with envy
Shall we not trade?
Or is it too late?
Let me invest in my granite
May I become an ever stronger rock
But how I wish to dance
