Literature
sea glass
she once found a shard
of sea glass. it was dark and
smooth and clouded, and
it smelled of salt and

her pillow always.

Literature
a lost soul
he was born with emeralds for eyes
and a storm brewing in his chest.
his mother said he was an angel.
and his father dubbed him a fighter.
since then his eyes have faded to grey
and the storm in his chest has quieted.
his mother calls him "a lost soul"
and his father just sighs.
i call him my hero
and he doesn't understand why.
his grey eyes reflect his own tortured world
and i don't know how to save him.

Literature
on sunsets, clouds, and perfect, blue skies
the clouds of sunset
hold all the day's colors tight
until the morning.
the world lights up once
again. and the clouds become
a blank, white canvas.
the sky is perfect,
fresh, blue, and wide for the day.
and it starts again.

time to forget.
when only storms cut through the silence,
and I am not there;
when you're afraid to open your eyes
and find the damage already done;
when it's raining,
and you don't know what to think anymore;
when you're the only one left,
and nothing you do will ever change that.

Literature
swallow.
i am swallowing
the sharpened splinters of a
house that should have been.
that house was in the

to get off the ground.
it doesn't matter
though; i decided that i'm
never coming back.

:iconbirdlu:birdlu 13 10
Literature
i have been deceived.
transparent smiles
hiding broken kisses
and dreams locked away
by tarnished keys.
green oceans filled with
death, on which hopeful
dreamers sail.

escape
thunderstorms are the easiest
way to escape.
just slip in between the raindrops
and splash away.
then let the thunder cover up the door
slamming shut behind you.

Literature
dead flowers and teaspoons
i still remember how you mixed up teaspoons and tablespoons and how we laughed about it together. i remember how i broke the mirror and threw the scatters into your face and i remember how i was crying and how i was longing for your touch on my skin but i knew i was pulling myself away from you.
i remember how we took off to the sky and how that made the flood of my blood calm down, like the flowers painted in the sky were calming my breath and i was afraid to kiss the sun, but i couldn't stop myself from doing it when you kissed me, because the sun was shining as bright as you were. i told you my ridicilous fantasies and you told me yours and i remember how i wanted to hold you but how i didn't dare to touch you because i was afraid it would make you come undone and scatter this wonderful dream into a thousand pieces which couldn't be mend ever again.

Literature
paperdolls
you used to fold butterflies out of paperdolls. you seemed to be able to create something beautiful out of something ugly, and yet there are no words to describe that, i still don't understand how you used that magic. right now i am without you and choking on desertsand at the end of the shoreline. i am staring at the one-winged butterflies flying oh so free through the clouded sky, paper dolls are walking along the water, moving aside everytime the oceans tends to swallow them. i can't decide whether i walk a straight line or make my footsteps go zig-zag through the sand.
the crumpled shades of the clouds seem to be weeping, up there in the sky. their tears are falling down upon me, they are creating ripples in the once so calm water of the ocean. the wind is ripping of the wings of the butterflies until they all have fallen down on the shore, doomed to drown in the now restless water of the sea. their eyes staring at me helplessly, hopelessly, waiting for me to save them but i cannot
