Beautiful. Delicate. Fragile.
Eyes flutter to a close and she lets those whispers,
Syllables rush and wash over her,
As the built in multitude,
Echoes of waves overlapping in a glass bottle,
One on the verge of overflowing already.
Help. I'm drowning.
She remembers Mother's glass figurines,
Poised, elegant, ready to waltz into her nightmares,
"Beautiful, aren't they?"
Because they dazzled with the colors of her Mother's tears,
Glass blown from the essence of broken dreams,
Shed when she thought that the darkness of the night
Blinded others from sight.
Yes Mother, yes.
He told her, of glass snowglobes,
"You're like them," he would say,
And somehow it was no compliment
To be compared to the wonders
She spent hours gazing at on lazy afternoons.
"You store everything inside,
A universe of your own,
And you don't let anything escape.
You don't let anyone in."
How? But how?
So she remembers her sister's, Allie's, glob
A Day -- of Weatheri think it was just that one day -- i cannot remember the weatherA Day -- of Weather2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
it was a day i would never forget -- it was probably sunshine and hot
it was the day, when i lost my faith in you -- it was summer after all
when my heart was destroyed, i sat there and heard -- mid summer, to be precise
that, in my time of agony, my time of destruction -- the winter was yet to come
you were too busy, to answer my call, too much to do -- leaves about to fall
i stood alone again, not sure of what to do -- there was chance of rain
and my heart broke...slowly as I hung up the call -- clouds dark
if only I knew the troubles to come - tear drops started like rain
Partial EclipseIt was the moon in partial eclipse, a breath of clouds in the windPartial Eclipse2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It was but a mystery, unsolvable, a slight look at God over your shoulder
It was but a secret, it was but a tear, when, the fantasy disappeared
You saw it, in all its glory, and disappeared...out the door
And as I packed up, quickly, I felt the loss, two losses in a day
And walked out to a world
-- that knew me.

Smiles, happiness, chocolate -
flake on top
She fell, head first into flowers
My last fantasy job
Serving her majesty, not all fun
Prelude to death
Angels saying "You're not ready yet"
Standing on the rim, time backwards
Wonderland, its normal to taste sounds
Angel in the Emergency Room
With a number saying "times up"
She ran across the field, naked
Held hands, as she faded away
I've heard them
Dogs speak, if you listen enough
Hell's the deep end, come visit
The Fading Sunlight
The dogs barked, as hell walked
Six Word Stories - Life, LoveNaturalSix Word Stories - Life, Love2 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The rainbow dripped colours of happiness
The newspaper read, folded away, gone
The suitcase packed to the brim
Her hair tore out in bits
Dances slowly across the spiders web
Nowhere to go, a lonely road
Cold snow, dry ice, black curve
Love, Happiness, Sorrow, Peace, Education, Change
The Camping Man
He had never seen the internet
On her death
He reached for a strand hair
Sign a death certificate for two
My head is on backwards, happily
Sound sweet -- to those in love
Lost love Songs
My heart bleeds, turn it off
Sent shivers down my inner soul
Held hands, as she faded away
My dogs death
I felt her soul, disappear away
Being busy -- puts off the agony
Lost love questions
Asking people, who have no answers
The Brady Bunch Magic
Lied to us, it wasn't true
