happy new year, everybody!
(enjoy the fireworks!)
sea glassshe once found a shardsea glass by birdlu
of sea glass. it was dark and
smooth and clouded, and
it smelled of salt and
wind, so she kept it under
her pillow always.
a lost soulhe was born with emeralds for eyesa lost soul by birdlu
and a storm brewing in his chest.
his mother said he was an angel.
and his father dubbed him a fighter.
since then his eyes have faded to grey
and the storm in his chest has quieted.
his mother calls him "a lost soul"
and his father just sighs.
i call him my hero
and he doesn't understand why.
his grey eyes reflect his own tortured world
and i don't know how to save him.
it's not just the leaveslast autumn i spent an entire afternoonit's not just the leaves by Overfinite
on my back in the grass waiting for a falling
leaf to drift downwards into my open palm.
i was convinced that there was something
special about being the first to hold on to
something that had never touched the ground.
i pulled my eyes shut and tried to make a wish
but when i opened them it was spring again and
i had forgotten how to believe in something that
was heading towards the ground anyway.
i will delete thisi keep dead flowersi will delete this by ILoveYouHopie
in my window in hopes that
they're just pretending.
