Broken Sky

the sky broke today



and fell down in a million little pieces



they drop drop dropped onto the stone statues outside



the magic that made the stars sparkle

soaked into the earth, the leaves, the people

all started to come alive



and suddenly the ground sank when i stepped down, branches trembled in the wind

the people

oh, the people, as they ran about, shouted, smiled

unaware that they had ever been stoic

as if the ages of darkness had been simply a second in time that only i had noticed



i scrambled to pick up the pieces of shattered canopy, to send them back above

but they ran through my fingers, slipped from my hold

so hopeless i surrendered

and now, for a second in time, only i notice the gaping hole overhead.



the world moves on.
