Event Horizon

 

silent

it stands aloof

so quiet

you wouldnt know its there

until you ran into it

and youd know

but forget you ever did

 

below the line theres nothing

nothing you could do to save

no human power sufficient

could not ever

not in a zillion years

reach beyond

shine light

into that insolent dark

but the gracious hand of God

dismantle

the barrier long reinforced

 

yesterday?

two days ago?

perhaps

last year?

more certain

not now though

not any longer

the shell is vast

impervious

impenetrable

 

such hard break

from the real

light fails

 

yet the gracious hand of God

dismantles

light dawns anew
