How did this fall apart?
In a luminescent explosion
Of fireworks brilliance
We saw our youth reflected back
In irradiant mirrors of ingenuity

And what was the value
Of the fragmented pieces
That was every memory of laughter
Off set by fragments of beautiful bone
We blew it into belligerent oblivion

In the spaces between the seconds
There was an eerie silence
And the knowledge of life and death
Was at long last appreciated
Viewed in the iris of an eye

Does the wadded up paper ball or the bowling ball fall faster?

I'm sorry, I zoned out. Forgot what I was going to say.

I sense growth with this piece. Only thing, you start off with a question, indicated by question mark. But, in the second stanza, opening line, is it intended as a question?? Also, first stanza reads "fireworks brilliance", I like the way "firework (no 's')brilliance" sounds. And instead of "That was" maybe: It was.

Overall, some growth to found in this. Thank you so much for sharing.
