I. There is an abyss in the fine grains of sand that stretch for miles into nothingness. Sometimes, the remnants are charred black, sometimes a resplendent glow that would put even the purest of souls to shame. Sometimes, the gentlest froth of the cerulean waves placates my churning insides. But your voice, like a gleaming jewel, pierces the calm with vibrant hues of shimmery richness. It slices the delirium with clarity, tones from static, healing from a purple bruise. Order from chaos.
