The Sky Has Split

The sky has split

its face into two

shades of equally

mesmerising hues

the first carries your weight

in a dream state

the parallel substitute

to what our pitiful minds

can't elate.

The earth surrenders

to its partner's calming breath

she lays her colours up

in a faithful play

of caress

Pity the fool

for he isn't able to love

the spaceless void

that lays between

the shadow

and the sun.
