"Bowing gratefully to all of my subjects, 'thank you. Thank you. The pleasure is mine." Nah, I'm just kidding. We're all kings together.'"
~Thesilentraven


A taste of something sweet
Snatched from my mind.
Sharp,
Broken,
Clear,
but hazy.
A forgotten dream,
an epic fantasy my mind played
in my sleep.
Enjoyed.
Savored,
like a small bite of
clear,
dark chocolate.
Lost-
except for stinging bits and pieces-
upon the morn.
My dreams-
And My childhood-
are slipping away.

I loved this! The bit about dark chocolate made me hungry and really brought what you were saying to life in my mind. This was a great poem!

Thank you very much :) I do believe that you are a stargirl, Aderes, in your own easily-relatable sort of way.

Goodness, this is tragically beautiful. I love your metaphors and well chosen adjectives. Once again, you display intricate complexity veiled by simplicity. I love it. It was so sad, and I know the feeling.
