happy new year, everybody!
(enjoy the fireworks!)
before i diei want a song to make me cry.before i die by birdlu
i want to fall asleep next to my most favorite person in the world.
i want to meet someone who understands and accepts every one of their flaws.
i want to appreciate the value of each moment.
i want to be able to say that I’ve laughed more than I’ve cried.
i want to share something with the world.
i want to wake up with a smile on my face.
i want to tell people how much they mean to me.
i want to experience one of humanity’s proudest moments and truly feel the weight of it.
i want to remember every smile.
i want to realize how good life has been.
The Flight of TimeTumbling into the playground of imagination,The Flight of Time by jazzle-ink
that shoreless ocean of possibility, forever churning and sighing,
where monsters had fiery scales and
eyes as glittering as the jewels they rest on,
whose cries shake the ground beneath the little feet,
the children let their minds soar with the wind,
floating away like the feathery
tufts of dandelion seeds they would

their eyes were bright with wonder.
And with the vibrant globe in that stretch of clear blue silk
that sinks below the horizon of their kingdom of a world,
the world that stretches from the backyard to the park,
the children return home,
launching into a tale of dragons and kings and treasure and victory,
to lay still in nests of warm, imminent sleep,
listening to the voices from under the bed
respond to the questions from the closet.
Now time passes
as dependable as
the newspaper hitting the ground each groggy morning,
as predictable as
the flight of the crow.
As the tortuous sun begins a new day,
