The Unmaking

Prompt: I had a way then losing it all on my own / I had a heart then but the queen has been overthrown ~ Ellie Goulding's "Lights" by pygmymuse. Welcome

Drat it, this world’s getting messy. When I first saw the Queen of Heaven, I never imagined she’d end up a poem or that the world would end up being the Mirror, made and remade. Well, I’m sketching my way through this continuity in poetry first, but I expect that prose will follow soon.

The Unmaking

Whirled 'round, making and unmaking / Raze, raze heaven 'til it gleams

1st Era. Final
Mirror Fantasy

Shake, shake stars from streaming courses
Break, break molten silver beams
Clasped ’round glassy mirror choices
Take, take time out at the seams

Gaze, gaze deep into the mirror
Blaze, blaze hearts into your dreams
Whirled ’round, making and unmaking
Raze, raze heaven ’til it gleams

Bright, bright in the molten mirror
Spite, spite reflections and regimes
Passed ’round, shattered into pieces
Smite, smite worlds from their schemes

Pass, pass torches to another
Chasse, chasse life to what it seems
Danced ’round bright and gleaming mirror
Glass, glass shadowed now redeems
