    a burst of green, i don’t know what it is but i know it will survive unscathed. i hope anyway, this bright expanse of nothing, this vast land of whistling grass. while the rest of us are squandered by the burning sun, the serenity of this plain preserved forever.

    there’s a difference between safe and careful.
    one is to protect others. the other, the self.
    i lie between the first. you, the second.
    you selfless eye you. you lover of truth, you savior of sacrament.
    how i long to live in your shadow.

    you pine for the seasons just like
    you pine for the wind, the way it sinks
    into your skin heavy like musk. pine is like elm
    soft and quiet, hazy. close your eyes and encircle
    the trunk of the tree, like a memory, like a daydream
    that never ends. a slick november, the fingertip of the rings.

    there were words and there were knives
    under the silhouette of the sunlight
    chiseled into bone. i saw
    the man with the chainsaw, cutting through
    the edge of the mirror, and when he slipped
    the cliff of metal caught on my throat
    and cut, jagged.

    One day,
    Memories will fade.
    Those storm eyes will blur
    Streaks of white, black, and grey
    The grey I used to know.
    Soft, golden laughs will
    Drift recklessly into the dying wind.

    And you’ll just be
    Another lost soul.

    A bare canvas,
    A spotless palette,
    A dainty brush
    waits.

    In the basement: Faded ivory gown. Tear-stained.

  • Hana commented on the post, laughter 7 years, 2 months ago

    They threw rocks at us. Ugly, sharp stones. They came for me first. The stones grazed my skin, and left bruises, bruises that never healed. Before long, My weak legs gave in and I collapsed. But you? The rocks they threw richoted harmlessly off of you and you lay unscathed. As they desparetely grasped for […]

  • Hana commented on the post, hearts 7 years, 3 months ago

    Our hearts,
    Attached with a
    single
    crimson
    string,
    knotted so loosely,
    I knew it wouldn’t last.
    But I’m sorry
    I was the one
    who cut the cord.

    Music full force
    Like it never had before
    The crazyness left me
    breathless,
    But I grew
    Used to the sound.

    As the first golden leaf
    Fell to the ground.
    It was the beginning
    But also the end

    A whirl of gold leaves
    A whisper of a sweet breeze
    A smile of cotton clouds

    All was still
    When her chest fell
    For the last time.
    All was still.

  • Hana commented on the post, artistry 7 years, 3 months ago

    With nimble fingers,
    She wove their web,
    Threads intertwining,
    loosening,
    tightening,
    Over and under,
    When the twisted fibers met their end,
    She tied a knot, and walked away.

  • Hana commented on the post, shepherd 7 years, 3 months ago

    Shepherd’s pie. A pie we’ve never had. It looks sort of gross. So we are glad we’ve never tasted it. But our Mama says to try lots of things, so maybe I should try it. But it still looks disgusting. Well. Thats it for today. Bye.

    A shepherd stomped across the lush green pasture, his sheep trotting obediently behind him. “Come along!” he shouted.

  • Hana commented on the post, dull 7 years, 4 months ago

    Puffy, cotton candy clouds mingled into the clear erulean sky, which stretched out far into the distance. Tall, emerald grass swayed gently in the breeze, bending over the quaint stream which caught the soft glow of the golden sun.

    So peaceful. So tranquil.

    So dull.

    Stacks of empty envelopes,
    Open wound. Heavy heart.
    Stacks of empty envelopes.

    Her heart, steeled and protected. No one could hurt her. She was invincible, unbeatable, invulnerable.
    But she was also alone.
