    Leaflets of loose fragility, like
    cracked mirrors revealing fragments of truth
    on the floor... they never seem to mind
    appearing rather like hazards to the wayward
    movements of dissolving perfection.

    How quickly strength withers.
    How simply and unexpectedly the heart,
    so certain of explicit feeling,
    loses pace-- and her shadow,
    roaming freely on the ceiling
    as if exclaiming "look down! not up!"
    for some unknown purpose,
    dances joyfully in anticipation like happiness

    It feels much like death, she said.
    And I understand, to the degree that I am able.

    It feels much like death...
    but we are different souls; unique bodies
    full of powerful, forceful, undeniable
    connectivity: honesty turned sour those
    ideals that had previously reinforced our foundation.

    Like hailstorms and flashing lightning in the eyes of two
    fascinated imaginations, each time the darkness
    revealed the silhouettes of fear and trembling,
    and love and quaking depths where she
    so readily supplied--hopefully--nourishment
    for my weakened Hopes:
    We witnessed the divide together,
    stubborn together, love not forgotten,
    but plausibility and fear of unknown futures
    struck like hail upon the window and
    flashing bolts through the anatomy
    of darkness.

    What was revealed?
    I am lost now;
    yet more determined than ever to
    do what my dreams have empowered me to do.

    Perhaps reality is no place for ideals.

    For some reason those lines kind of put of smile on my face. Very nice imagery and a beautiful story. I'm usually not the biggest fan of poetry that doesn't have some sort of rhyme scheme but this flowed beautifully. I was really captured by everything in this piece. Read a lot like a spoken word piece, maybe that's what it is. Anyways great poem surprised this is the first poem I've read of yours

    Stay Up, Much Love, Peace
