Quiet.lost.alone.
Joy
Has found me once again.
Forever it's been
That in the hall
I've looked beyond
The mint-green walls
And ugly lockers
To find a Hope
Untouchable
In the stars.
Stupid-empty-useless.
Words
Thrown out to hit me once again.
Stand up
Look them in the eye
Prepare to stretch
My verbal hand
And slap away their sting.
But I think of the stars.
Of that Hope
Untouchable.
The Hope
That Words
Could never reach.
This World
Could never reach.
That.I
Could never reach.
So vain I stand
Beneath the stars,
Unable to find
That glittering Hope
That inspiring Hope
That untouchable Hope
That I've forever long for.
So here I stand-
And here remain-
Until, at last,
I break away
From this body
This Shadow
This.Error
This World
Forget the past
And bask
Alone
Quiet
And lost
Finally floating
In the Touchable Hope
Of the stars.
