A poem of sorts, aka The Crystal

I dabble in writing poetry of sorts now and then, and this is my latest piece.

Let me know what you think, I appreciate any and all critiques of my work.

The Crystal


I see a clear, shiny crystal, with millions of facets, like a diamond in the blackness of my mind.


Suspended in the middle of a cavernous void, no visible tethers or supports, shining like a star in the night.


Then I bring the light.


Streaming from above, bright, glorious light, of many colors, of all the colors.


White, orange, red, green, purple, pink, blue, yellow, every shade between.



Striking the crystal, filling it, then, in a blinding flash, cascading through each facet to fill every corner of the cavern.


And there is peace, there is healing, and most of all, there is love.


There are others, crystals like mine, shining in the dark.


I see the light leap from mine to theirs, the stream joining, linking these diamonds in the dark.


All traces of the sludge of despair, fear, and anger disappear, replaced by the pure and wonderful love of the universe.


And that's when I realize that this crystal, this many faceted diamond, is me.


My soul.


My body merely a vessel, a transport if you will, between planes.


Words cannot adequately describe a revelation like this.


Me. My soul. Everyone's soul.


Wow.
