|Licking at the softest surface
And past the shiny places,
Burning all the known dimensions
And smoothing out the spaces.
Lifting dust into the air
And thick clouds of gray,
As the wind rises in the distance
Just to blow it all away.
Screaming whilst turning to rubble,
The nothingness, serene;
Bubbling down to a void of ashes
And the worlds to walk between.
For a moment nothing’s left of her
But dust and memories
Until again she grows and rises
From the ashes to dance in the canopies.
