A Beautiful Letdown

fallen

A season of growth

Lies discarded on the ground

Beautiful letdown

Surprise

frosty-fence

frost feeds on fear

freezes future fortunes

dishes up death on a silver platter

wouldn’t it be shocked to know

when we are flash-frozen

we grow glorious?

Curiosity

yellow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If I could pick some sunshine, and hold it in my hands,

If I could ride a rainbow to far-off radiant lands,

If I could sprinkle star-dust upon a restless sea,

Then I could read the riddle of why you’ve chosen me.

Wire

taut wire

Below,

ink slimes its black

and worms trails

in souls with words

scratched indelible,

pithy as coal

Above

oxygen breathes colour

and swims in silky

tides billowing,

angels in tow

while

Between,

I

stretched taut,

frayed wire hung

from precipitous

mantle, reach

for what

is mine
