THE VERSE

The Verse is the SellFable Archives blog. It contains reflections on what is happening within the SellFable Archives, and the universe it researches. Hopefully the poetry, texts, art and sounds will 'magnify your spirit' and immerse you in this wonderful poetic art world.
I hold my breath

I hold my breath

I hold my breath
Behold the weaving of a universe
I wish you had wings
To outrun this league of kings
But you wield your fabric and loom
While I hold my breath
I watch your tapestry bloom

Here is the bright sky

Here is the bright sky

Here is the bright sky
Our turn towards the light
If this horizon darkens into night
A new brave spark will be our guide

Synchronized shipwreck

Synchronized shipwreck

Synchronized shipwreck
Will we go down together?
You’re on your own
For the world to see alone
Everything dies
If only we could step
From one verse to another
But its such a giant leap
I don’t know if i can make it
This is reality
Is this what man is made of
The feed, the food, the greed
This boat is going to sink
The tech won’t help
Its just you and me against the wall of apathy economy
and these words mean nothing to me
When I’m drowning
Sinking into blackness
Where tech and words won’t help me
We sink and watch each other while we go
Together we go under
Snowflake universe
The robots will dance on our graves
Refuge
I seek asylum
In another universe

I lost my bearing

I lost my bearing

I lost my bearing
But never loved being lost more
In this city
That has always been
And forever will be
I lost my bearing
Merely a number
Nearly a machine
Only a silent empty shell
Unworthy cogs and wheels
Can a touch
And a touch
And this gentle robot
Lost as it is
Have a soul
Does it have a soul
Can beauty become
Part of me
