part i.

maybe the way translucent leaves shine with sunlight

filtering through verdant branches.

[it's your soul, hiding beneath breaths of

life and shining with pale sin.]

part ii.

or the way you fall in love

for the very first time.

[the kiss was backlit with


her eyes held cosmic terrors]

part iii.

and the metamorphosis of birth in a

microcosm of life, a precious utopia torn apart,

but we will return one day and our hearts will be

healed in uncorruption once more.

[growing pains start early,

as a Phoenix falls, another must take its burden.]

part iv.

but do you remember how

your morning tea

would swirl with cream,

steam crawling out of her cup of coffee.

[possibilities and problems,

slipping from your grip like


down your grandmother's window:

it wants to drown us all.]

part v.

and the way God shook out

His hand to feed the fireflies:

they fell like stardust, a

waterfall of silver nebulae

complete in shimmering radiances

of yellow and copper, bursting jewels

and leaping fey.

part vi.

and that spider snakes through its web,

curling strands of cobwebs like memories

through your frizzy brown hair.

part vii.

or the way angels believe the lies of demons:

they are ugly, they are cold, they are weak for

having wings when the devil

only has scars.

part viii.

wet feet slap against the cool pavement

with agony, running away from the lies and the way

her words held secrets,

tucked under each curl and slip of

the tongue.

part ix.

in my dreams, horses run towards freedom

and trample my death wishes--

to die alone; unloved.

part x.

and maybe how i miss you,

and cannot hate you for taking a piece of

my crumbling heart without permission,

because i know i took a bigger piece of yours.

please forget me someday.

[forgiveness is the fragrant blessing the petal gives to the heel who crushed it.]
collab with a friend b/c we couldn't decide what to write about . dying is a side effect of depression .

Part X is probably my favorite, even though there's so many incredible mindpictures and emotional jolts throughout this piece. Lovely use of vocabulary to paint vividly in the imagination. Congrats on your DLR feature.
