"True terror is when you wake up and realize that your high school class is running the country."

If you were here with me
I'd take you outside
Into the wondrous blackness of
And show you the sound
Of moth wings brushing the stars

We'd watch our dreams
Soar up around us
Into the rainbow teardrop sky
And over the crystalline vanilla
And smile

And the dragons would sing
To our song
The one we wrote together
When we danced in the meadow
Of sapphire roses
And lights in the sky
Would call us

And when we were done
With our starlight
We'd race away home
As the stars blinked at our feet
And the sounds of hoofbeats
Echoed in our ears

And we'd nestle under the
Blanket of velvet
That is the midnight sky
And the Moon
And the song that is
Would lull us to sleep

And we'd soar on sheets of
Fiery dreams
In the realms of the thing
That we know as
Off into the

But you're gone now
So I'll never know

I like the phrases that you use like "crystalline vanilla earth". This poem is really interesting and unique and is unlike any poem I've ever read. Good work!

I'd also like to add that I like your formatting; how you put key words on their own line like "Hope" and "Sunset" and "Adventure".

I love this! Amazing! You used countless amazing descriptions, like "moth wings brushing the stars", "our dreams soar around us", "rainbow teardrop sky", "the meadow of sapphire roses", and "sheets of fiery dreams". You are a great poet and this poem paints a lovely, vivid picture in my mind.
