Beyond the Fall

Steve Knarr

the glass sky

shattered into one billion pieces

and fell

covering us with small cuts

that burn when

touched by the falling tears

we ache for something more

in our hearts we know this is it

we have destroyed the pure beauty within

and we can never go back

our dreams

shattered into one billion pieces

we fell

leaving scars where we once had wings

now removed

lost forever

oh how I miss thee
