Before The Inhale

byLiar©

Even for titans
I have ceased to be
a pebble on the riverbed,
forgotten until
crystal by crystal
kissed away.

Even those
who live their lives
in Valhalla intoxication
and impenetrable ideals
must now acknowledge...

I am,

therefore I think.

So now,
I will incarcerate
my incandescence,
suffocate the flames

and lull a raging mountain
to sleep.

Anchor this tundra soul,
granite and diabase tether.

Not to pin
a stray ego straight,
or a wide ambition
hopeless...

but to give my words
the pivot focus
of Pangaea's children.

Then,
only then,
will I speak
the range of me
through the decor
and deliquescence
of common denominators.

And by god,
you will listen.

You will
listen.
