Create your own sayings, for only then do they make sense most. ---- Me


When the yellow leaves sped fast
With wings so weak, in the wind,
A darling spell was cast
Upon my fingers, and colours pinned


There was a Victorian house,
The ladies there were lovely, blind
And there was an Autumn rouse
My mind, up to the sky, assigned


There was a chariot unmanned,
Which broke to shards of crystal glass
There was a lamp upon a stand
The fire melted to red mass


The storm was echoing afar
The roads were listlessly leaf-clad
My eyes wielded a scar -
And then, people shrieked like mad


Drops of diamonds fell slow
The girls were dying in the smoke
As I heard a snow dove crow
I watched myself within a cloak


And when the ink was dry
I cried in my secret heaven, wild
My mind was hard to pry
I still am an Autumn child

Ever had fleeting disjointed thoughts? Ones that seemed too beautiful?

This kind of reminds me of a lot of my earlier work. I would just write what came to me, and see what happened. I love the whimsicality of the phrasing and how the stanzas are organized.

"The Autumn Child" might had indicated somebody else, but "Scattered" is a little subtle. Wider. Thank you. :)

It does not do to dwell on dreams, and forget to live.
