I am sitting

In a field of sparkles

At high noon

During lovely autumn

There is simply


Don't forget the field

Don't forget the sky

Don't forget the aged trees

Don't forget the dead leaves

Don't forget the wind

Forget why

Let my memory

Fly away


Like my heart once did

What are these sparkles?

Everything is so clear

Why is it filled with sparkles?

I see sparkles

I don't think I'm supposed to

Such precious sparkles

They drift

In and out of view

As the sun silently sets

They really set the world

On fire

I think I like them

These subtle sparkles

They are quite attractive

Sparkles seem to float

On invisible flowers

Fairy dust seems to

Intoxicate my sight

All I see is sparkles

They are everywhere

I am drowning

In sparkles

I am eating


I am


I have closed my eyes

Everything is nothing

I am blind by

My own will

I have shut out the sparkles

Now they are in my mind

These sparkles

At first they were meek

Now they are in my


I dream

Of sparkles

I open my eyes

The dream is gone

Memory is gone

There are still


My body is covered

In sparkles

Am I a sparkle?

I run

I scream

I yearn

I cry

I remember

I lie on my back

In the field of sparkles

And I look towards the sky

I sigh

I am happy

Gazing at sparkles

In a field of sparkles
