Intent


Intent

And we stand here looking at each other,
Wishing he would do something, go somewhere, be someone else.
But as I turn away and break into a trembling walk,
a feeling follows me at my side that he will remain.

Sunshine and rain poor down from above,
Lightning cracks the pale blue sky wide open,
Deafening screams escape the tear and whisper past my ears,
I watch them drift off ahead towards the horizon.

Water churns west across the land there, collapsing
With leviathan weight, quenching the parched wasteland.
The once dry land blooms around me with torrents of brilliant flame
Reaching to the blazing sun and the lonely moon.

They shine down, veiled by the heavenly stars in depths unseen,
Free from prying thoughts, veiled by earthly clouds
That waver like a dancer creating motion that had not yet been made,
Falling behind me,
Shattering the earth with their intent.
