Because 7 Ate 9

A dark room
Red haze staining the dark
In bold characters
2:10 AM

Ring around a rosy

1 2 3 4
The seconds keep going
8 9 10 11
Why was ten afraid of seven?

A heart torn open
Petals tossed
Into the breeze
He loves me'

26 27 28 29

Floating and sinking
Rising and falling
Soft petals spin
Lost in cotton webs
Settling on Libra

We all fall down

29 28 27 26 25

Before cotton wisps were stretched
And pulled
Then thrown
To float in the wind
Caught on starts and hung there

15 14 13 12 11

Under the stars a blanket made of cotton
You and me

5 4 3 2

Before it was over
Before it began
I had a rose missing a petal
He loves me!

Why was ten afraid of seven?

You have a really unique style. I read Falling Up and thought to read your other work. It is unique, diverse, interesting to say the least. I have to say that I liked it.
