In a new mother's smile

In an old mother's smile
On a holiday spent alone
On a yartzeit spent together

In a bucket drawn from an empty well
In a broken-down car by the side of the road

In a slow-motion, black-and-white
moving picture

In an old and empty casino
From a desert, a mountain, a sea
It rises like a mist

From the beach at sunset
From behind those eyes
From below the decks
And you can find it hiding

Between the lines
Between our hands
Between our hearts
Beyond our minds

Favorite Quote:
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel
