Cosmic noise, released from the sheet of stars
Above me and around
Surrounded by sounds
I can’t understand.
Translated to the language of pain
Talking in my ear at a pitch
I can’t comprehend.
Swirls of black encompass my vision
Til I’m staring in the mirror
Of outer space.
Mercury collides, and I am given life
A split heart and a split mind.
Everyday debates with a different face.
Calm before the storm
Whispered into the air, floating towards
an Earthly energy.
Painting my constellation into the memory of the universe
Outlined by thoughts engraved in my mother tongue.
The mind speaks at speeds unthinkable.
Can’t fathom loneliness in my head
Can’t fathom wholesomeness in my hands.
Moving and spinning, twirling and dancing
By my breath’s motion
External command, guided by my own hands.
Cosmic noise, speak to me
Quickly and thoroughly
Tell me about the world
And all who inhabit it
Tell me about the creatures that occupy
The same space and time.
Pull me through the vortex
And show me how to stop the moments
Let go of my hand, watch me fall
Against all that I stood for
Empty and free.
