Excitement ripples through me

coupled with anxiety 

You still cut a fine figure

and i, this faded flower

feels pale before you


Time has dampened only half a world of passion 

hidden by a thick velveteen veil

It sits straining under its weight

Hoping for an unguarded moment to let it all fall 

And catch the fire with its wind

until its unstoppable!

consuming everything in its path

and nothing but destruction in its wake!


Both older, wiser and patience has enforced itself unto us.

But no fools, we know what torture lies in these endless moments ahead. About to endure many lifetimes in one flicker of an iris.

The message understood

The circumstances provide endless mystical musings.


Pinpricks of anticipation,

butterfly wings flick their tips on my insides.


I am dying to bloom once again

in the pleasure of your atmosphere.

"Hoping for an unguarded

"Hoping for an unguarded moment to let it all fall and catch the fire with its wind until its unstoppable!" That is a remarkable sentiment, and so very beautifully. I applaud this piece, emotion is all but carved into it.

"Some people die at 25 but buried at 75" Benjamin Franklin
