To Choke On Glitter With Perfect Eyes..

By BeautifulCalamity

I wore today like a swollen flower. .
a bruised lily on the shoulder of some perfect body.
It was colored by the sky, and sang out as
star born lovers would..


They were beautiful,
and they lay nude. ... .


I'd say I cried when the flower
slipped from my frail limbs,
but I could not

It's departure was too real



It held on , not .. . .
It dreamt on, not . ...
But she let herself fall away with the wind,
after she realized she was
a l o n e


The lily was perfect,
as soft and subtle as the
dreamlike flutter of a butterfly's wings..

The lily was sweet,
formed of melted caramel kisses
+ chamomile tongues..


[you
induce
trances]


And , when the flower floated away
I believe she found her place.

herself.
her own.
her bittersweet sounds. .

. . . . .

now I found myself moaning on a scent I'd not known..
and lingering on some dream I had never had.

. . . . .

Some people are beautiful, and I think that all of our lives- we look for them.

the artists

we search sentences and watercolors, and perfect
notes, perfect voices

the creators

look through numbers and ages, revolutions and wars. .
to find,

the dreamers


dreamers.
I'd call myself one- but I've yet to find my dream.
my hope. my vision.

I like to think that I'm trying to find that feeling,
that security of knowing. .
I love to know- it gives me that much more of myself.
of my dream. my lilies & flowers. .
butterflies & stars.

[masks]

I said in my goodbye that I'd be forever moving on in
these words. . and that is pure truth

these fractured words are mine-these sentences
are mine. .
something of my own.. . .

Life isnt just about being alive. It's about feeling, and
making others feel. and I sincerely hope that somewhere along the line , in one of my dreams, I've affected
somebody. .

"Forever moving inside these words.."

Beyond me-
there are beautiful people, and they too search.
for the amazing
the sincere
the perfectly flawed
the creatures
the poets
the artists
the lovers
the dreamers
the forever
the born

I continue on- not really knowing how I got to this point..
but I'm here, with my defenses down. With my heart out.. .

& If you are looking then you've found
something. someone. .

a person that wore today like a swollen flower.
proud and beautiful
weak and ugly
. .... .

Humans. Are. All.

& I am only human

    I enjoyed reading this, but could not get over the taunting thought of how much more beautiful it would appear written out by hand on a page rather than the injustice done by only putting it into document form on the web...

    You wove these words so beautifully and effortlessly, that first line drew me in and by the end I could do nothing more than shake my head in awe. Insightful, beautiful, perfect.

    i am humbled. i once wrote these lines: once the gilded lily starts to wither/love breaks down like toxins in the liver i realize now why the lines did not belong in one of my poems- the moment i grasped the point your poem illustrates- about the love that does not die, which is the love of the very essence of a soul, dead alive, material or ephemeral. an object in abstract in or out of context. if i wither and turn to dust, my own essence will be done justice for this poem was written for each and every creation of art and it celebrates each individual artist for their purpose of being in keeping dreams alive. *applause*
