just pause

among the bright bands of light
igniting the space before these hands
comes a just pause
a truth spoken in silence

here a notion flared

for without so speaking
all else unfolded from this one point
might be shorn
of something authentic

here lay a heart ignited

the dark bands of shadows
grown before my hands
move in the moving light
and here is the thing of it:

here stands a soul consumed

to its uttermost reach
moved to rend the gears of fate
at any cost
for this one world left unmade
