"I wish my body to be a staircase

to heaven."  She said, "A conduit

of lonely Gods."—Swaying

pendulum hips, she, she

was made of stardust.- Scars sleeping

above a city of sweet bones, stirring

like sun-stricken scorpions during

hollow painkiller nights,

mistaking her redred burns

for Apollos kisses.

"Sadly, this body has whispered away
the last of my secrets."
Why do I insist on writing when I am sick?
I don't know either.

I think, if you don't read anything else in your gallery, you need to read this one.

Because writing is comfort to writers. It's all we have left when everything has withered away.
Well that wasn't melancholy or anything lol

What stands out about this poem is the beautifully creative imagery- it carries a sense of mythology, a longing to be more than what we are- In truth, there are those who sometimes are more than what they seem and when we end up in their orbit, even if only for a short time, we are all the better for it.

Being sick does have its upsides. Sometimes, you just don't want to think at all, and sometimes, you just let all the good stuff come up without stopping ;). Nice job :D

I suppose.
I have just been sneezing literally all day!
And when I say all day, I am not exaggerating. Dx
Could I possibly sneeze my brains out? T^T
( I've never had bad allergies so I don't know whats wrong with me. )
But it makes me feel like crap. :(

Anyways, thank you! :heart:
