"..But inside something gnaws at me; some presentiment, anxiety, dreams - or sleeplessness - melancholy, indifference - desire for life, and the next instant, desire for death; some kind of sweet peace, some kind of numbness, absent-mindedness..." Frederic Chopin

Don’t gaze at me, little flower –
your sticky fingers taste of the
sweetest auburn, and no less –
your head hangs heavily on
demure shoulders, tiny feelers
weaving through gauzy summer
nights, sweating softly in the dark –
steady yourself, close your silken eyes,
the upset dark will chill your bones
when the moon loses her way, so stay –
sail through waves of panting heat,
laugh at the blackness that inhibits you,
no doubt –

Beautiful, descriptive, and the language just flows so nicely. The personification is truly creative. Just lovely work.
