She was the quiet sort,
tsunamis tucked
within her eyes,
anxieties pinned
to pottery skin;

she would mold herself
into moonlight butterflies
and glist'ning calla lilies,

pure and white and
beautiful.

and when night cast
itself upon her in
heated, hard'ning flames,

she’d smash herself
upon the rocks
and in morning start
again.

.
I would fill her with poetry,
breathe it in her skin; she is the perfect metaphor,
so beautifully whole and wrecked.

I sort of was infatuated with a poet finding someone whom he wanted to write words upon—thrust his passion upon.
Your thoughts would be much appreciated (and any critique you may have: I'm still learning!) :blowkiss:

EDIT: :faint: HOLY CRAP A DD! thank you a million times over!
I just want to express my overwhelming gratitude. I'm really just blown away that people would think it good enough for such an award. All the comments, favorites, and watches are extremely appreciated. This just means the world to me. :heart:
Also thanks a bunch to `HaveTales-WillTell for the suggestion and ^Beccalicious for the feature!

It's an amazing poem! I love the gentle but powerful emotion it brings. It is an amazing expression of love. 10/10

Honestly, from one poet to another. This is the kind of poem you should take to a slam or a contest. With something like this, you would give your competition a run for there money.

This is so late that I'm kind of appalled, but I was hoping to tell you how much I appreciated this comment. Especially because I've seen some of your work, lovely, and I do so adore the way you construct words. I've just been really busy, but hopefully soon I can skip on over and leave a comment or two. I'm really sorry I haven't done so, already!
I hope you have a fantastic day! Best wishes~ :thanks::heart:

The more I read this poem, the more I fall in love with it. Please don't sell yourself short with this poem - it is definitely more than worth the DD feature.
