infinities & eternities: part I

We scream into the darkness.
We hide from the light.
We shelter the deepest parts of ourselves.
We shed the flaky layers like onions.
We give the easiest fragments of ourselves.
We sequester the real pieces of ourselves.
We do what feels necessary to survive.
We do it for the cruel world.
We are frozen like the recesses of Siberia.
We are bitter like the purest cacao.
We are blazing like the Sahara dunes.
We are burning brightly like a meteor.
Once—maybe twice, thrice, rarely four but with luck—
Briefly—
Shining for a flashing infinity—
Brilliant, resplendent, split-second infinities.
This is Part I of a series that I began a while ago, but I haven't written Parts III and V yet. I'm not sure it really has any personal meaning. I just like how it flows and looks, because I'm a heartfelt logophile. (Meaning I love words.) I think that the importance of this poem is in however you interpret it.

    This is so good! It does flow very well and I think like you said it can be interpreted differently and that's something pretty unique!
