Discover (From Book Untitled) - Poem by Aram Stefanian

I happened to discover
A new brillant color
Washed by the flickering light
I reached a precipitous height
Too scared to look down on the ground
I could clearly hear my heart pound
I invented a new rasping sound
Travelling faster than light
Echoing and provoking a fight
Bringing the hypocrites around
I devised a new kind of affection
Platonic, unselfish and eternal
Profound, sincere and reciprocal
I just wasn't issued a license
But was compelled to demolish
Everything I considered so valuable
