They said
she has starving
little poet fingers,

& lungs-

filled with
the heroic hearts
of nameless protagonists.

But, she cries

tears of Saturn
on too-little-sleep nights,
& coffee ringed mornings.

They call her vanilla.

Innocence,
much too ripe to fall
with freckles on her
wander(lust)
shoulder-blades
singing connect-the-dot

blues.
Her love is hungry.

Wow.
I honestly expected to go to this poem treading angst, but nope. Then again, I saw your name mid-way through reding and knew it'd most likely be something startling and fresh anyway.

It is kind of angst ridden, but I tried to make it very much my own. :)

And it is. Angst isn't necessarily a bad thing, as it stems from normal human emotions. It becomes annoying when all the focus goes into "poor me, look at my pain and suffering!"

I got a little lost in the symbolism and feared I might drown. I'll have to rest a bit before traversing these waters again, I do, after all, wish to understand. I'll be faving this one for later reference. Till next time.

I believe the ending gives way to it's true meaning. :)
But I like to allow my readers to interpret as they see fit.
