The World Through My Eyes

20130218-174544.jpg

The sea looks so serene
In the dead of night
Moonlight
The road to infinity
Ripples
Small bumps on the way
Gentle pushes
Swaying along the current
Till i can reach home

Blood curdling screams
Crimson
My hands shake
Pool of blood at my feet
Sticky
My bare toes curl under
Scarlet
Like the lipstick
I fumble to remove
Frantic
It spreads

Wings flap above me
White
Pristine feathers
Wrap around me
Warm
Shielding me from the cold
Covering my eyes
Only fragments visible
Just enough
Not too much

His hands wrap around my torso
Fingers entwined
Woven together
Made into one
Violet
My sigh inescapable
Whispers on my forehead
Nose
Cheeks
Lips

My dream’s an abyss
Dark and bottomless
Black
Like the velvet sky
At an eclipse
The sound’s louder
Hands reach out
Grab
And pull

Musty
Dust covered books
Pasts forgotten
Futures ruined
Presents famished
Chapter by chapter
Destroyed
One page torn at a time
God complex

They broke me
Made me indifferent
Desensitized
Scars visible
For the world to see
I share these with them all
They too are broken
Afraid
Lost
In a world that chooses to exploit
Manipulate
Its way into our hearts

The day i met you
Smiles and dimples
Big blue eyes
Fascination infinite
Innocence second nature
Flowers tattooed on your skin
Glitter in your hair
Plump fingers reached out
Took ahold
But the fall was hard
Reality pushed and pulled
Exposed
Naked
Finally the world was no longer perfect
The world through your eyes
Through my eyes
Was broken

Glitter

image

Her hands clasped together

Fingers tightened around each other

Mangled

Tangled

The surface rough

Every particle

Every grain coarse

Her eyes shut

Feeling of touch

Her only savior

Blind

Wading through

Each stroke

The destination unknown

Tickles

Goosebumps

Glitter embedded into nail beds

Fingerprints

Skin

Her life

Erupts in glitter

A kaleidoscope of colour

A ray of hope

It rains down on her

Her hair

Her cheeks

Her lashes

Her nose

Each a sparkle of life

Her laugh rings out

Happy
