She was the quiet sort,
tsunamis tucked
within her eyes,
anxieties pinned
to pottery skin;

she would mold herself
into moonlight butterflies
and glist'ning calla lilies,

pure and white and
beautiful.

and when night cast
itself upon her in
heated, hard'ning flames,

she’d smash herself
upon the rocks
and in morning start
again.

.
I would fill her with poetry,
breathe it in her skin; she is the perfect metaphor,
so beautifully whole and wrecked.


---------

I sort of was infatuated with a poet finding someone whom he wanted to write words upon—thrust his passion upon.
Your thoughts would be much appreciated (and any critique you may have: I'm still learning!) :blowkiss:

EDIT: :faint: HOLY CRAP A DD! thank you a million times over!
I just want to express my overwhelming gratitude. I'm really just blown away that people would think it good enough for such an award. All the comments, favorites, and watches are extremely appreciated. This just means the world to me. :heart:
Also thanks a bunch to `HaveTales-WillTell for the suggestion and ^Beccalicious for the feature!

Oh definitely! I truly am so very sorry it's taken me so long.
If you'd like, you can post some links on my page? I may get to them quicker that way, as I'm already going through so many messages... it allows easy access and I'm more likely to jump on it sooner (I tend to be forgetful). :tighthug: It would be no problem at all!

-this poem makes me think of women, what it is like to be female inthis society. Get up, put on your pretty face, go inyo 'nice mode' (though,not all women do this)and at bed time, let it fall to pieces,fall away.

-it was powerful

I had to take a few minutes to compose myself, before I replied: This was absolutely one of the lovelies comments I've received in a while! I loved hearing your interpretation of this poem... it was such a pleasure to read through!
Now that I think about it, perhaps it really mirrors that... but more for everyone who feels they need/own a mask. :tighthug: :heart: thanks for the perspective you lovely person, you!

It was deeply appreciated :thanks:.
