Into nothingness.

ball of fire

I could be
a ball of flame
majestic, if only
for a second

Then
into the air
from which I came
ashes and dust
gone
without a name
Alive
for a moment
into nothingness
the next

If I
could see
the depth of humanity
perhaps I could be
a part of something

More than I
can imagine
more
than a sea
of drifting dreams
or the rocks
beneath
the swollen ravine

Unspoken words
exchanged
by the voices
the voices in
my head
that if
I spoke. If
I spoke.
I might be
alive

These faceless figures
dancing shadows
they speak
amongst themselves
in my head
they speak,
they laugh and they cry
unbeknownst to you

Yet you

You
would never know
for these words
they never leave

But if
I could
speak
these words
would you listen
would that you could
and if I
would speak
once again
Would you

Listen

Or would they be
like a ball of flame
magical
if only for a second
before they fade

into nothingness
