I used to be lightning.
Power surged beneath my skin,
    and in the silence, I heard myself thrum.

I used to be fire.
I burned bright inside, stellar lungs,
    and in the cold, I sang myself warm.

Still and dark.
My stone sinews crack.

I am vacuum, deep void of space.
Asteroid dust, floating.
Aimless.
Impotent.
I freeze.
I'm not sure how to finish.

My friend once told me that a writer can never really finish. You just have to let it go. You have done it and you did well.

Congratulations on your DLD! :party:

I love the first two sections of lightning and fire, they're beautiful and my only criticism is that there weren't more of them. I would have loved to have seen other comparisons to different elemental forces in there. Even so, it was a lovely piece.

:+fav: Maybe you're not sure how to "finish," but I see this as a whole piece already.
And what a fine piece it is. I think the last line is wonderful, not to mention the rest. :iconsparklesplz:
