ribs



but if you follow the deer-paths?
deep, deep down into the throbbing heart of the woods.

you come across that poem
that you've been waiting for all your life.

here.
you are safe here.
so you lie down on the sweet grass and let the moss grow over you,
until the wind blows your bones away.

He sees me.
but my ribs are like trees that haven't blossomed yet.
white trees.
and only the God of the stars would have the heart to believe something could grow from them.

    thursday was the color of clear water. today was a nothing day. a yawning and watching the sun day. and baby, i'm exhausted. *sleeps on your lap*

  10. Words words words and beautiful beautiful beautiful-- you got me babbling and sobbing uncontrollably. It's Sunday, and I'm currently writing about children, which is bittersweet, because it is about them growing up. :(
