Tomorrow is nowhere,
torn across the Perseid night
in a blind cascade
of lost-frame starfall.

Tomorrow is nowhere,
a mantra of spools unwound
and floundered
reels whose trails

Spread a constellation
across the abyssal
anamnesis
of loss -
Memory veils
long-shorn of horizon
in the mourning.

Tomorrow is nowhere.
None are so tall as those about to fall,
dragging the horizon into barren earth.


Melodrama abounds. It's a commentary, of sorts. Excuse the weak structuring, I'm beyond rusty.

Rusty or not, you have an impressive way of conjuring vivid scenes and impressing tangibility to emotion through your words.  I always feel like I'm transported somewhere else when I read them.
I like it.
