don't forget to post the ongoing poem in the spoiler... :)
Spoiler! :

Under the broken stars, I breathe in
One more burst of light.
Colors whirl like apocalyptic galaxies,
hurling shards from across the night.

I closed my eyes and saw dulled visions,
Cascading, smiling like lost people who have someone
far away, waiting on a lovely windowsill.
Staring that way they look through
the darkened window, hoping against all galaxies,
showing it's longing for home.
And memories flash before my befuddled mind.

Nothingness melts into


creation
but i don't think i can ever love someone
who doesn't understand that teal
is a different color than
dark cyan.
