When everything turns to nothing, I'll still be there for you.
[poem] And yet your color is broken with old wings 
3rd-Oct-2009 12:36 am
Yes, it's been a while since my last one.
This was written during the flight back from my vacations. I had my eyes closed, half-sleeping, half-awake, yet neither, when I suddenly woke up, with words lingering in my head. I got paper, and a pen, and started writing, gazing outside from time to time.
And yet your color is broken with old wings, those were the words I had heard. Further, there were things I could have changed for "refinement's sake", but somehow I felt I should leave this in its original state.

And yet your color is broken
(21. September 2009)

Searing high with the clouds alight
trailing the shadow of a broken kite
the wind covers nicely the feathers of flight
as the silence of sorrow tastes like the night

Shades of grapefruit paint the horizon
as blue and green eyes dance in liaison
reflecting the stars as they gaze into black
inducing a trembling, soft smile to crack.

The crescent hanging over the green draws a dream
that spills down over as a silver-white stream
entangling their fingers in another night’s sleep
when one of them wakes, as the other one weeps.

Waterfalls purple under an orange glow
remind of the remnants of the song of a doe
silence started shrieking as sadness unfolds
another pair of wings with feathers of gold

Wrapping around it like the lovers they are
Love and Longing reach out for a star
that reflect in their tears as they weep and smile
over unspoken good-byes and two-thousand miles.

So you have amazing writing skills.
I really did enjoy this.
It had a silent passion that I just couldn't help but enjoy.

(It's been far too long, Mao-sama. ♥)

This is beautiful, and the imagery is both touching and permanently haunting. Your regular journal posts would leave me astounded with the dedication of detail and prose - your poetry is beyond compare. Gwen-dear, have you ever thought of trying to become published? :)

(It has ;-; ♥)

Thank you dear...
Ugh, aren't you flattering a bit too much? Yeah you tend to just say the unhidden truth whenever you want to, but... ... Haha, the detail puts some others off though... Oh well, preferences.
And yeah, I do want to get published actually, but I have no idea, how... and as I'm only writing in English (or... 95%?) but not living in an English speaking country, I have no real idea... ;-; Else I guess I would have sent in things but... hm.
