it's come to this-- definitions
of memories and people and dreams
I’ll never know firsthand like reasons for living;
this realization that I
am a stagnant planet, lost
on its orbit home; this

search for a justification
to keep on breathing ocean
when my lungs won’t tolerate
salt. I woke today in the water

to angels swimming around my feet;
coral, pearlescent anchors dragging me
down, down, sweetly lullabying
about you, dear, and the day
the tides washed you away.

you are written in my skin
as much as the lies I live by
daily. you are the beautiful things:

the sun waking up in the morning, the
stars pitying at me as I try to fall asleep.
the watercolor sky sighing, the
virgin clouds crying, the last note

suiciding itself into silence.
these are the thoughts that come after goodbye

You caper beautifully with the imagery, yet the parting theme remains cohesive and self-contained. Your writing is one of the most amazing in this world.

I could easily say the same of you. You are still one of the biggest reasons I continue to write.

You'd think as a poet, i'd have all sorts of pretty words to tell you how wonderful this is. I don't. You've left me speechless.

"the sun waking up in the morning, the
stars pitying at me as I try to fall asleep.
the watercolor sky sighing, the
virgin clouds crying, the last note

suiciding itself into silence."

just wow. Frickin amazing.

no such thing as too kind my dear. :) you are a brilliant poet and a tragically beautiful soul. I hope you get to feeling better soon. Just know there are people you've never met who adore and respect you greatly.
