Favorite Quote:
"All the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come." ~ Victor Hugo


You are the beckoning darkness,
pulling me under with almost-smiles.
My dark knight in ragged armor
christened among the falling stars

Like scattered nighttime giltter.
I am arranging my world around you.
Sorting out my cosmos to fit
your unfamiliar outline

-still unclear, I cannot see you fully.
You keep your vital past buried.
Moonlit fathoms, I can't make out
a story from the fragments you've given me.

Yet I am fitting myslef among the pieces,
safely, and to say I chose this
feelign would only be
half a lie

-I hate my treacherous heart
when you smile.

Beautiful, galssen shards of sky,
you are made up of the things I fear.
And, the things I've not yet learned
to be afraid of.


The author's comments:
This poem is inspired by the book "hush hush," The girl knows that the relationship is potentially dangerous, but it feels right. She feels like she is betraying herself, but also likes the feeling of being darkly spontaneous.
