Excavating the Archives: Ode to a Geode

Unbroken

You hold the promise

Of all or nothing

The sparkling crystal interior

Of vibrant dreams

In rainbow shades

That glimmer in fairy light

or

Stone, plain stone

Smashed for no reason

But to see if

Like the rest of us

You are more magical

On the inside

Than on the out

A divine spark

Concealed within a

Skin of stone

Obsidian’s Dark Heart

obsidian stream
Obsidian’s dark heart
Cares not for feelings
It spares nothing
Revealing truth with harsh words
 *
It has no time for pretences
As it forces us to look within
To turn inwards and see what’s in our hearts
Both the good and the bad
*
“This is who you are,” it whispers
Though it does not judge:
“You are made of both darkness and light.”
*
Obsidian’s dark heart
Cares not for feelings
It cares not for hopes and dreams
It cares nothing for who we aspire to be
*
For it’s purpose is simply this:
Reflecting the truth.

Ode to a Geode
