Speak to me of luminous things,
things that will get me through the night.
Of shiny swords and cold bright faces that will walk us back to safety.
Speak to me of everlasting things,
things that will reveal their undying presence.
Of coldhearted stones and fortified canyons that one day will outlive us.
Speak to me of mundane things,
things that will ease my mind and split the day.
Of overdue bills and long forgotten friendships that never once valued anything.
