01:47 — cannot sleep, cannot eat, depressed. I’ll write.

I don’t belong in this world — or the next

Matter floating but yet encumbered by the ether through which I must pass

I am carbon

I am hydrogen

oxygen, nitrogen, calcium

I am a poisonous chemical — off white, yellow

Glowing slightly then quickly I burn.

I burn, I crash, I fall.

I am reaction yet I do not react

Matter that does not matter

Out of the ash I rose, back into the ash I fall.

Dust from dust

Darkness in a galaxy of light.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
