Snow falls in great white blossoms to the sea, 

budding slowly as they fall and disappear,

but they turn into stars -


shining in the daytime, as well in the night, 

drenched in sunlight, becoming sunlight 

in a strange green darkness of sea;


and I lay on an ocean of stars,

on beds of breathing waves,

looking up to something more and beautiful


and seeing paths of gold in the sky,

leading to home, leading to heaven

as the sun sets and dies. 


A flower is stirred and a star is troubled,

and useless rage is tempered by patience,

by a great ring of pure and endless light 


that blinds the the darkness in my heart 

and kills inside of me

what needs to be dead, what needs to die.


Eyes are closed and fingers brush the sky, 

and a broken heart heals -

hope like an open, eternal flower.

I truly understand how you're feeling here!!!

I am doing alright as I can be, taking one step at a time; taking care of myself as best as I can and know how to - I hope though that you're doing great as well. Take care of yourself too, ja? ^_^ I am trying to do that, to believe for myself. But my friend, who is truly gifted too, take care of yourself too, be safe. ^_^

Oh, yay. That makes me so happy, hearing that. ^_^ Physics, wow. I have always been interested in physics and have thought of majoring in physics when I'm in college because I want to major in a science and, well, physics has always captured me. ^_^ I heard though that physics is like a higher form of math, and I'm not very good at math, haha; and I need to major in a different science to be a doctor, haha. But besides those random things I'm saying, haha, it makes me happy and glad that you are... (more »)
