Example text

Like moving mist, They soar. Defying gravity; Pushing their way through The immaterial clouds. The dragons fly. This time; It may be their last. They have come to take them, And their fiery, vengeful breath, Is ineffectual. Dark shadows, Twisting, swirling. And then – They are gone. All is quiet. The dragons fly once more. Crystalline Lifetime · 47 Beauty Cherry Blossoms Twisting and turning, Wriggling, writhing out of reach, What are these I see? Cherry blossoms on the wind, Nature reaching out to me.

She has risen, above me, While I gaze, below her. Crystalline Lifetime · 31 Stuck Cold Memories I get goosebumps listening To the music you make in your sleep, It sends shivers down my spine; Or maybe it’s just cold? Like the seeds you’ve sown for yourself, They’ve grown to new heights, Died at their peak. Does that worry you? Does me… Least you’ll never know The sadness I felt Listening to your brokenhearted wishsong, And the sorrows of things You did Or didn’t do… A million painful ‘maybes’ Strewn across the open sea.

Crystalline Lifetime · 49 Caged Possibilities Trying to hold on, A spanner in the works, Living for the good times, While all the time I hurt. Remembering the many joys, When not before so long, Just when things all seemed ok, Everything went horribly wrong. Then life didn’t seem so easy. Things just didn’t flow. I had to find out what went bad, Shrivelled fruit left out to rot, The mouldy wreck I had to show. A spanner in the works, Though what the spanner was, I really didn’t know. Behind my back it lurked, Just beyond my grasp, I guess I should have known, That the good times wouldn’t last.
