Crystal Cave

We do not go to the see the lampenflora
But to see the formations and colors
We need to bring light into the cave

The highlight / pun intended
Is the cave where all the lights are turned off
And we listen to the water and its echoes

I have grown cynical
As I have been shaped by others
And not by water as this cave was

So I am not surprised
At how my fellow humans cannot tolerate
Either the dark or their own silence

For just one minute

This poem was written to the day twenty prompt to write a dark poem at Poetic Asides.
