Life is...

FALLING, falling, catching all the sky
Filling up the night like a lonely firefly
A flicker, a moment, a tale without reason
A burning cold, a freezing heat, a most intemperate season
Never a more senseless sense,
A more melodic song
Never a more present tense,
A more incessant wrong
A feeling of desire, never to be filled
An unsurrendered will, never to be willed
A living, breathing thing, never to be killed
Unpredictable.
Falling, falling, cradled by the sky
Whispers you to sleep with a silent lullaby…

This definitely should have been in the magazine. Shame on the editors. You are simply BRILLIANT.
