Existence

Existence

Does it exist?

Shh!
We do not speak of such things,
not here –
they can hear.

Who?

They,
they who siphon –
they siphon the life,
right-out-of-us.

They?

Them –
those who say,
it does not exist.

It does not?

Shh!
They can never feel,
see
touch
hear
pant for air –
from another’s lung.

Does it exist?

What?

This!

No, we say no.

Who?

All who steal the stars from the sky,
and bury them in the dirt.

But I see the tree’s roots glowing,
the trunks are vibrating,
the leaves sparkle unnatural light!
It does exist.

Shh!
Keep it hidden,
deep in your belly –
far, far away.
They can never know,
that our buried stars break free.

Ours?

Those who know,
shining in the grayest day,
seeing outlines,
silhouettes of galaxies –
imprinted in our fingertips.
Us –
the ones who can feel,
see
touch
hear
we who pant for air –
from another’s lung.

Us?
Twins spinning,
spectral beams,
blaring behind dull eyes?

Shh!
They can hear,
they watch,
waiting to pounce –
trying to kill the stars.

But they cannot!
I see the tree’s roots glowing,
the trunks are vibrating,
the leaves sparkle unnatural light!
It does exist.

Shh…

    I LOVE this post. The writing and the artwork. Very well done. I don’t recall seeing anything like this one. It’s an original.

      Thank you Russ! It makes me so happy to read this! Sometimes I write these out and they end up turning into a story instead of a poem, but I liked this one just as it was. 🙂 I found that image and thought it was perfect. I cannot find the original source though so I am not sure who should get the proper credit.
