whispering beyond echoes . . . 

​i have been 

just a nobody 

that somebody used to know 

names to faces 

that never look quite the same 

voices heard like echoes 

upon winds 

too faint to carry mine 

as i’ve roamed wildly 

guided by scar tissue 

upon my sleeve 

a burden of a heart 

held together 

with an ancient magic 

found within my soul 

from the stars above 

i continue to shine 

from the inside out 

as i expose cosmic matter 

on my way out from the inside 

torn into pieces 

a puzzle of imperfections 

gathered together 

in some kind of 

misplaced perfection 

so within heavy scar tissue 

i am whispering beyond echoes

for what is screaming in me 

isn’t a puzzle 

but yours to behold
