I do not want you to tell me
of crooked smiles and offshore
moonbeams woven with nightingale
words. You are living in
after memories. You have forgotten
I will live in a way that's unorthodox.

I only want for you
to be lonely and small,
but it's for your own good, you know.

Breathe it in, hold it in, hold yourself
between each of your heartbeats.
Change because some things are
like estranged runaways caught between
the tilt of the earth.

I was the ocean in you
and you didn't understand.

This one is gorgeous. The way you put it together is so interesting -- I found myself having to read certain lines twice because they really made me think.

:heart:! Thank you. I'm really glad you think so, and even more so that it made you think. It took me a while to find just the right lines from EsotericHeart's work [which was so hard, there were so many good ones!].

The last two lines are an absolute wow.


Challenging set up. Well done in making it come together how you did.

It is, but it's so fun to get to read through all these wonderful poems and find a way to weave them into something else. ♥
