Light Escapes

Sunrays create shadows beneath peaks of interest
Brightness overwhelms moments of inadequacy
Equality crushed by geologic plates
Movement unseen
Density shifted
Underfoot thoughts collapse within quakes of conscience
Faults’ cracks appearing no longer between convenient footpath stones
Disintegrate soul components
Few become many now myriad
Sparks’ gathering remains possible
Only moments longer
Flourishing improbable
Survival the new goals
One is not
Cohesion requires black holes of integrity
Horizons’ fears attract moments of clarity
Light escapes
Leaves not darkness
Only absence
