Poetry - Thoughts Above

By Violet Tabacco

2/2017

We know not of the

world that is greater

than us

a void of eternal

curiosity

Illuminated by a flicker

of candlelight

a pinprick at the end

of a winding corridor

 

Deep azure has paved the murky way

fading to a deep incomprehensible

blue

In the depths

of an oceanic state

 

An encompassing deafening

roar

composed by a million

triumphant whispers

 

The obscure noise

blurs together

sinking lower

deeper

 

lulled into a

dreamy daze

thoughts grow

above the constellations

that have guided minds

through their uncertain webs

 

The flame grows brighter

as we fall

into an illusion

falsified by knowledge

 

filling gaps with

shards of broken color

where reason does not reach
