BIG ETHEL’S VACATION

It has been awhile since I have written a duet with anyone. Thank you Byron Hamel for making this one amazing.

She smiles down
Her warmth unseen
But undeniable
Her wings
Gust softly
Turn the world
She is the artist
Sculptor
Raising mountains
Painter
Coloring the sea
Rejoicing
She descends
To further gift
This beautiful creation
Closer she comes
Closer
Through the barriers
That slow and freeze
Joy fading from her skin
Impossibly
Her heart stops
She is somewhere
Dark
In peril
In a mire of golems
Screaming clay and mud
Chained by false freedoms
She redoubles
Cloaks herself in love
Compassion
Expectations shatter
There is war
Surrounding her
In empty suffering
Meaningless decay
Destruction
Disappointment
Heartache
Sorrow
Pain cracks through
Her skin
It bulges
Bursting as she watches
As we slay our brothers
Prostitute our children
Kill for entertainment
Corrupt everything
Twist truth
Abuse our reasoning
Our gifts dashed
She erupts
Her molten tears
Spilling her hopes into the sea
And she is gone
And she is nothing
And we didn’t even know she came
