"To these the past hath its phantoms,
More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"
- Isabella Banks


Sciamachy
It happens a lot,
Me and myself,
fighting for thought.

The shadow,
With words,
It speaks on its own,
Flying away south like the birds

What a neat disorder
I have in my brain
Logolepsy
I love the insane

Speech,
Lyrics,
language and more
Oh, I love it!
I truly adore

The sound the
Words make,
the way that they flow,
How my mind knows
Just where to go.

I highlight the dictionary,
Finding them all,
Hidden verbs,
Trying to fall

Into the shadows
Where Sciamachy lies
I find and I fight them,
my greedy green eyes.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Also! I am honored that I know you and that you are a friend, for you are just phenomenal. :)

Oh, my applesauce Liv.! This is absolutely, amazing and phenomenal. I absolutely, love it. :) (and I just learned two new words that I've never heard of before, which I'm very happy about! :o)   This was just perfect to me, and I'm not sure how to explain myself. :p The only way I can explain myself is that I just love it and I think that your poem is wonderful. I love how smoothly it goes, it's just talentedly and wonderfully and beautifully written.   I am so glad, that I know you for you are a wonderful and amazing and talented and beautiful writer and person, filled with beauty and talent and greatness and light and so so much more. 'Tis true, my friend; so always keep that in mind because you are powerful and amazing. :)   Thank you so much, my friend for sharing this! :)
