Seven-thousand, nine-hundred-and-seventy octangular suns
and none of them were made for you.
Drunk on golden syrup
and too heavy for your own wings,
you'll drift in and out of the reality some genius named “the sky.”
Flowers tangle among each other to strangle cobwebs.
The earth's getting old and you feel like being younger.
Paint yourself yellow with scars of black
because contrast is interesting and drama is too.
Seven-thousand, nine-hundred-and-seventy octangular suns
and none of them were made for you.

I love the use of numbers in a poem, so thats a plus. I love the lines 'beacuse contrast is interesting and drama is too' and 'too heavy for your own wings' good emotion.

This made me desperately sad...such a lovely poem. Made me think of summers, and the few memories I have of being little. Poetry that reaches readers' hearts is good poetry.

this was brilliant.

i have seen a lot of horrid poems on this site. this puts a majority of the over-the-top melodramatic ones to shame: you showed a great sense of control and used it to your advantage. the imagery is beautiful and the flow is right-on. 

do us all a favor and don't stop writing.

Wow, this was a truly beautiful poem. I loved how you wrote about something so original, but delivered it in such a unique and sad way. Keep on writing, this is amazing work of art! 8)
