Poetry - Thoughts Above

By Violet Tabacco


We know not of the

world that is greater

than us

a void of eternal


Illuminated by a flicker

of candlelight

a pinprick at the end

of a winding corridor


Deep azure has paved the murky way

fading to a deep incomprehensible


In the depths

of an oceanic state


An encompassing deafening


composed by a million

triumphant whispers


The obscure noise

blurs together

sinking lower



lulled into a

dreamy daze

thoughts grow

above the constellations

that have guided minds

through their uncertain webs


The flame grows brighter

as we fall

into an illusion

falsified by knowledge


filling gaps with

shards of broken color

where reason does not reach
