far beyond

by Tim G. Young

far beyond the far beyond
sparkles the stars like sparkles
no shade to hide
no glimpse of death
only a long ride
to the wind
like you never knew
blow past the hollows
that shiver with the dark
return to form
ancient and new
pick your peace with history
don't remove what you can't see
rest for a long time
taste the bitter fruit
and drink deeply
the questions will surround you
by night the answers
slip into the abyss
haven't i met you once before
far beyond the far beyond
