The Craftsman

Contemporary contemplation
Masterfully ripped
in thoughts dripping amber
each glistens as they enrapture minds
Removed from the confines
of the rational
He toils to lay silken lines
across the beating
Filaments spinning
to liberate the fleeting
whims of those passing by
Expertly crafting melodies
Strung on the hopes
of the ones left beating
the rhythm of language
mapped out in the soul
His thoughts pull them together
making each whole
Left behind in silence
the words still resonant
as antiquity falls
fading to amber
My thoughts are a whisper
Exposed to the rational
reality falters
Faced with the truth
we melt into darkness
He has that affect sometimes
