Beneath and Beyond

IMG_6687

Inside a weathered, withered bud

hides a complex system of inner workings,

intricate, intimate, inimitable details

that make up a single story,

 

the brown and brittle outer shell,

as fragile as its former petals,

still faithfully protects the core,

a universe inside a star portal,

 

what lies beneath and beyond,

a lifetime of lyrics begging

to be composed into wordless song,

a dirge with no hope

of becoming worthy,

 

for a heart and soul

can never truly, fully be so conveyed:

it must be touched

to feel the unearthly power it contains.
