one word left...

i send words out to you...slipped into the silence...hanging there like stars...waiting to be touched...this is the part of me i give to no other...the gift...a sacred incantation to make me visible and understood...but i know even before i send these soft notes from my heart they are not seen as anything but a plain string of shells or a pile of old bones...you do not see the gift...the vulnerability...the humility...you see the waste of time in reading my words...there is no celebration...no blessing...i bother you with my drivel do i?

words lose meaning when they are not read...they implode like stars and empty out of all their wonder...there is no joy...no embrace...

there it is...you have conquered the heavens...you have turned the angels mute...the muse has struck down the artist...i am empty of all my stars...

i am relieved to be beyond the beyond...i have to smile at this...i always thought hell was warmer...but it is actually quite cold...and dark...and wordless...and even now i have to admire the heartless muse...the star killer...the master of the heavens...it must be an amazing power coursing through your icy veins...you slay hearts with bone crushing silence...you break spirits with your indifference...i wish i had just one drop of your powers...i would finish all of this that you enjoy tormenting like a cat with a mouse...how is it even possible i am still worshiping you? but i am...perhaps there is the cosmic joke...the bruising punchline...the trickster smiling...but i sit in darkness patiently...for artists often go mad and in their madness find the truth...i want that truth...and in truth is the word...and the word shall set me free of you...
