"Vacant" poets united poetry pantry #26

In a white light streaked
with crimson … smashing the tiny
pearls of an optical sphere  

Anguish is relief when comparing
love of deserted natural virtue

Reasoning is too much to undertake,
brittleness of the senses compact
into a space with no room to move

Crystalline nightmares invade every
corner, seeped with sorrow

Vintage aspirations bustling in unison,
breaking extensions on elongated plains

Chartreuse light bolts against torrid
blackness becoming fetid and fearsome

Breaking up the stones surrounding a
silver pond filled with fish singing
long forgotten songs ...

Heard in echoes throughout the land
