On the moonbright windowsill,
with delicate lace-tendrils
twined against her tender frame.
Whispers of moonlight
float across her eyes,
smothering the sunset
amidst her frosted gaze.
She hears the sound
Of sundown and sunrise,
amidst the colors in
her tired eyes.
ballerinas pirouette their illusions
to nature's lightening strike,
beneath her ebony, shadow sky,
with shooting stars spelling dreams.
Dreams of words and colors,
and whispers of wonder.
with hollow gems of tear-water
wrapping around her cheekbone.
her dreams are slipping away.

Dear boy with ice for blood,
Please don't hate me, but I couldn't save her.
It was a Sunday night and I was tired. We struggled near the pier. She was shaking and screaming, she told me it wasn't worth it, she told me you didn't love her anymore. Her hands tasted like fire and her eyes were glaciers, and I sizzled and fell to ash.

wishing they could block the clouds
But some clouds are too bright to block
And others will just seep through.
It was just yesterday that a glimmer
of a whisper of a hope of sunlight
peaked through the clouds covering my heart.
And in that instant, I remembered.
There were happier days, not too long ago
When birds took flight under sunshine so bright.
All I can see are the bright sunlight patterns
that have been scratched into the clouds;
No matter how hard I try to fly
Dreams are just the pigment
In which reality is painted
And I cannot escape

you hide in the shadows of ebony trees in twilight and dance across the valleys of the darkest hour. I wonder if you're wearing an invisible cloak, or maybe that is just my mind running wild. You tiptoe across the creaks of the wooden stairs of imagination and wish on fallen snowflakes in the darkest corner of the attic, you watch the bright city with a smile and you light it up in flames with a single candle.
you hide in the crooks and wheels and turns of my grandpa's watch and you strike at the most unexpected hours.

On regrets, and fears.
Words are lost
In the shadow's found here:
We can't unsay,
And we'll never undo
The whispered lies
And halftruths unwanted.
The unmeant crimes
Of our fearful hearts.
We're just broken people
With broken voices
And hearts that stopped
Ticking three years ago.
We're all just as
Messed up as the poor man
Who stands on the corner,
Waiting for forgiveness.
But can't we see?
We've been set free.
