i am
somewhere beyond hurricanes made
only of butterflies
and carpets pushing moss
between your toes
and trees that rut green
against stained glass
and dandelion clocks that blow
june around the snow-capped peaks
of your shoulders and the mountain
valleys of your collarbones

"we are all just stories"
and i have mine to tell

if we're all myths
strung up on strings of dragonfly wings
let me walk on fire i stole from
mount olympus, let me open pandora's box
of phoenix flames flashing purple and blue
and let me be a girl wearing a queen's skin
or cloaks of thistledown and lost baby
teeth
www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxj6Ii… inspired by this!

i've not written in ages. wow.

Really wonderful imagery here! (and the whole poem really) Made me visualize many beautiful scenes.
