She is dream dust,
too bitter or wise
for her own good.

A timeless dragon's soul
somewhere inside a
scaled shell, burning
the silence in her bones
alive, honeysuckle sweet.

She collects fireflies only to
set them free at 3am,
crying to an uncaring moon.

& she's begging for the stars
to take her away,
make this house a home
rigged in the sky.

To me,
She is already naked fever
swimming through the cosmos

& I orbit her.
I didn't like this piece at first, and then I did.
Now I don't even know any more.

Thoughts?

It's cool, makes you think hard when your not sure though don't it. I like it. I guess I run into the same problem, sometimes she becomes star dust and she takes you away. Firefly or a car's tail light's the speed of sonic leaving everything behind makes you breath it all in more.

I can't think of anything in depth to say, but it's all of the things I love.

And so sweet...

And so broken...

<sub?the language is very evocative and stirring, a very well written piece!! the only teeny tiny niggle i have is the 4th stanza, something about it throws the flow and feel off, just minutely (i think maybe the last two lines, theyre quite conclusive), but apart from that, i love this!!<3
