We are still waiting for the thunder from the distant stars,
The echo of mortality,
the whispers of a storm, half-remembered,
in sepia-coloured hallways in buildings that smell like books.
Time gets slow in waiting,
ghosts are formed from the wanting,
taking shape in the spaces where sunlight,
or moonlight doesn't touch.
The stars shake from the vibration,
and the ghosts shimmer in anticipation,
but we can't hear your voice in the dead of the night.
I was watching a youtube video about " Why is night dark?" and at one point they likened the universe to a thunderstorm, and said the first line of the poem. After a quick perusal of the comments section- no one had realised how pretty that line was- they were too busy having a science/ religious debate. [link]

This is beautiful, and your description in the artist comments adds a nice layer to it as well. It's nice sometimes to stop arguing over and analyzing the universe and just indulge in its beauty.

*snaps in applause like a poetry slam audience* This was good, my sista. A beautiful way of creating imagery and surreal atmosphere. B)
