i have been told that
my cheeks seem to slender
like the stars.

truth be told i

inhaled until my bones
bloomed through my skin
and i sunk;

licked my kisses chapped
'til they reddened
like the roses;

contracted so i'd esvaniss.


i had once hoped to find
it there, the beauty

but instead i
always found space.

Don't mind me, I'm just commenting on a poem I should have commented on a long time ago.

This is amazing. Fucking amazing. Fuck you for being so perfect, and me for wishing I could write half as well as you.

:heart: :heart: :heart: (Yes, I just gave you three hearts... because one is not enough.)

beautifully explained.

I like how soft-spoken it is - like a whispered secret among close friends on those random nights of honesty.
thanks for sharing :)

Hey gravity, i found you again. You commented on my last piece, thanks again for that :D
I agree with what you said, it does read like a softly whispered secret. It's rather elegant in that sense.

Elegant prose. Deep and thoughtful. It's beautiful. It's got a kind of... silk and vanilla feel. Something beautiful and extravagant and empty.

When I read this, I get a sense of sadness, of someone lost, searching not just for beauty, but for the beauty of being happy with yourself, of who you are.
Seldom do we see those who are lost until they are gone. For me, this is highlighted here, with my favorite lines in this piece:

"i have been told that
my cheeks seem to slender
like the stars.

truth be told i

inhaled until my bones
bloomed through my skin"

The imagery is near perfect, the underlying meaning strong and emotional.
Congratulations on a well deserved DD.
