The Shadow of Life


Across the sky the spear travels.
It pierces clouds and erupts rains.
What is the purpose?
Is it for destruction?
Is it for the deities?
Or is it a selfish act?
Beat by beat, it accelerates.
Beat by beat, it loses its shell.
Beat by beat, it burns away.
It cracks everything else,
But it is not real.
It lies to Truth and speaks the truth to false.
It creates a millennium in a second.
It wraps itself around hate and devours it.
It is not a snake.
It is not a chimera.
It is love,
Unreal yet powerful,
Hollow like a ghost and warm like flames.
It can combust or it can shatter.
It breathes our desires and swallows our conscience.
It is the Gemini of our being and the shadow of life,
Because it is always traveling across the sky.
So is it for destruction?
Is it for the deities?
Or is it a selfish being?
