Digital Relics

Rushing in to find things hidden in the dust

digital relics left behind to waste away

to rust in the rain coming through a broken ceiling

even as their voices speak in monotones

repetitious stories of a long lost origin

under a different sky than these tattered clouds above

Soft was the light that kissed the beginning

and so dark the shadows that shroud this end

following the leader on a march down to silence

and soft wonder at these new hands

caressing faces worn by time and dust

whispering a promised end to shadow

and a caravan to carry them out into the rain

What kind of music do you listen to when you’re writing? If you listen to any at all, that is!

      1. I suppose time period, location, characters, and theme play a big role. It’s usually random music that inspires my writing and not something I picked specifically to help in the process.

        You can’t go wrong with that Chilled Cow station though. I agree that it’s easy to disappear into.
