"We pass the word around; we ponder how the case is put by different people, we read the poetry; we meditate over the literature; we play the music; we change our minds; we reach an understanding. Society evolves this way, not by shouting each other down, but by the unique capacity of unique, individual human beings to comprehend each other." - Lewis Thomas

Language of Eternity

There was once a voice,
Whispering at the ear of nature.
She could speak in every tongue
Languages heard, languages unheard.
Her words strong enough to ignite life
A blaze burning her single desire.
For you see, she lived alone
Believing she had to, never sharing which she gave.
The world she shaped around her,
She censured her thoughts, her words, buried the desire.
Friendship, Companionship, Love
Perhaps it was power? Or perhaps fear?
She lived upon the sky.
Her hand covering her face as she whispered life
Tears crashed against the leaves and branches.
Her agony would bring down the sky
Chemical creation, her angled desire.
Neglected Desire,
Three angers: Lust, Jealousy, Paranoia.
Possession, an emotional conclusion,
And eternity she would wait.
Until one day, in the tranquil sanctuary of bliss,
Her desire grew and the world echoed with her cries.
Intellectual possession,
She engulfed herself and created Him.
Her Sanctuary slipped away from her elementary grasp,
Her eyes opened and her lips were consumed.
There was once a voice,
Her voice, and it whispered in the ears of everything.
Reality came crashing down,
Left to wander in endless companionship.
