What it is is coming through air. Travels across green mountains and fair oaks. What it feels like is a razors edge cutting through the deepest part of the bedrock.

And all along the longing was there. It was crying out for someone to care. But the silence was deafening so it fared.

The sidewalls were made of stone. Jagged edges can cut through to bare bone. The deeper you descend the colder it grows as you pass down into the marrow.

And all along the hollow was there. It was crying out for someone to care. But no one was noticing so it fared.

A little piece crossed to the other side. A little green got into the warm tide. A little blue passed into the meadow. Now the pieces are starting to grow.

And all along potential was there. It was buried under acts of foreswearing and the chasm was reveling in the rare.
