Darkroom

Excavated Laughter

She talked of crystals, and understood them. I took it in and heard the earth.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A mine I followed, impossible to crawl through. A geode that shatters with her youth.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I examined the glimmer, upon the surface. Each cold crystal had a blackened glow.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My love was there, for the taking. Now it's been given back to her.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But anger can fade if you cast it away. Dig a hole, bury it, and welcome back laughter.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A sparkling gem abandoned down in the depths. My love's been given back to her.
