When I was determined to speak up.....no words would leave my lips.....

When I tried to not say a word.....a torrent would flow.....

Sharing with a friend, one day....
I said.....
The only thing remaining is for me to turn into stone.....

Oh how my heart broke.....
It all hurt so.....

Even as the idea of volition went flying out of the window....

My heart broke.....
At all the tears that had been wept.....
Till the eyes were sore.....
At all the smiles that had left....
Fading into the shadows....

Nothing stayed.....

Oh how I'd tried to string them on a thread.....
A sparkling necklace of jewels around my neck.....

Ephemeral......dew drops.....
On a string....
The sigh of morning mist....

Drained of every last droplet.....
Eyes blank.....

And the mirage shimmered with rainbow colours....
Dancing starlight.....

In brilliant hues of joy and sorrow....
In the non existant pool.....
