The Waters of the Lake

In the waters of the lake

Where the crystals rested

I looked at my reflection

Framed with my hair falling down towards the lake

 

In the quiet atmosphere

Only I heard noises

Hammering screams

Of all the signs I refused to see

And mystical whispers

Reminding me of the exquisite rainbow,

“It is bound to shine after the hurricane”

I listened as my heart reacted insanely to those words

I stared for so long

As my tears rippled the waters

The apocalypse of feelings exploded in blinding light

And I was commanded to be still

As still as the Sun is while planets orbit

“Be still!”

I heard,

“Be still!”

 

In the waters of the lake

Where the crystals rested

The voices that captured me were mine

I looked at my reflection

And the crystal waters were also staring back at me

As my tears dissolved into it

I saw colors I have never seen
