A gem, emerald on black
A cage of stone, surrounded by rubble,
                                                                                                                                                         Trapped.                                                                                     Unable to move, unable to escape,
In a darkness unlike it has known

Alone, it finds noise in the solitude
A voice, speaking to itself and nothing
                                                                            A Crack.
A split in the silence, a sentence of light in a paragraph of darkness                                                                                                                             The story of metal on stone
Chipping away at the debris,
Light shimmering through its body like glass on a midsummer day
Free of the hush of its prison

A gem, emerald on black
The story of a cage long forgotten                                                  Erased by the clink of metal on stone
