i have to be honest;
seeing you has always felt like
looking inside a cityscape, nightlight kaleidoscope
and i've grown accustomed
to fragility and our literal,
nanosecond dalliances.
we flicker on and off at the speed
of improbable, dysfunctional
light. i have to be honest;
i am honestly afraid
of your sorrowful sighs, and eclectic
gaze, though eerie and off in its
lissome niche, still crawls under my skin
and plants little foxgloves
where i can never find them.

you worry after events so impossible
that your aura of floral hues
giggles and reminds you
that kept-secret cardamom leaves have stayed
for as long as you asked
and let you sleep soundlessly with
midnight traffic lullabies. morning,
we both know, is tainted with the dull mauve
of my departure and now that it's time
for yours, i have to be honest;
you mustn't
grieve.

you are more than a secret
that will be forgotten with the creak
of a silent grandfather clock, and your
petals, my sweet, your beautiful petals,
still grace me in my discomfort. they
speak (have you heard?) and sing
in your mellifluous, pianist voice
of how big cities are homes to short
romances and that ours
was never baseless;

it was infinite.
you're not small, you're beautiful.

Your poetry is absolutely wonderful. I knew by the third line that I was going to love this.

(On an unrelated note: I have to ask--based off that last line and the description--Have you even seen/read Perks of Being a Wallflower?)

Your insight and your way with words is so wonderful. I wish I knew of better words to describe it, but they will not always come when I call. This was an example of such an emotional piece: I felt it so deep within my bones. I'm sure the person you wrote this for just loved it. I know I did! Viewing things from your perspective always leaves me winded and desiring more! Luckily, you've got so much to share!

seeing you has always felt like
looking inside a cityscape, nightlight kaleidoscope
and i've grown accustomed
to fragility and our literal,
nanosecond dalliances.

This, I think, had to be my absolute favorite chunk. What a symphony of words, giving way to images of splendor and the tiny hint of dependency. I felt like I was ascending a stairwell of glittering skyscrapers because of your beautiful imagery, and I adored the tender sentiments that you expressed here. The line breaks just felt as if they were meant to be there, and I think all of the breaks in this poem were utilized splendidly! My eyes were delighted, at least, to see them break off where they did.

Such a fantastic job! This is truly beautiful beyond words, I think. I'm sorry, then, that my words are inadequate. :rose::heart:

I Forgot about My sandwich just now. and the Bacon is cold, because I kept rereading this.
I looked-up the names, & I've yet to watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I really want to.

When you mentioned "Foxgloves," did you mean it as a "Beautiful Poison?"
You definitely don't want Foxgloves under your skin {and don't eat them either} - they'll ruin your day, and afterward, they'll leave you with no days left to ruin :(

It's Perfectly fine, and if anything, you should've taken it as a compliment & thanked Me instead of apologizing.
Maybe I'll get to it when I finish Pushing Daisies.

You're welcome. I'm glad that attempt to Murder Me helped your writing.
Stop that. I'm not done with you yet.

You apologize so much for so many things that don't require it. Really.
Have You watched Pushing Daisies yet?

They're very pretty flowers, and I like them a lot, but they'll kill You until You're really dead really quick & You'll stay dead for a REALLY long time. What did You Think of the world before I existed, then?
What's got You down? I can't have you doing anything so foolish; too many of My Favourite Pastimes are dead already...

i'll note you.

Fair enough.
Let Me Know when you get around to it! They're so freaking cute!

Just *nibbling* one of the upper leaves can kill a fully-grown adult; it's NOT something to toy with.

Really, now? I wouldn't consider that rational - I'll destroy you, and calling Myself a "bad influence" would be an understatement. { [link] - where has this been hiding? That's about how I react {or don't react, rather} in such situations}{minus the baking}{occasionally, I'm worse than that even, going so far as making sure they promise to include Me in their Last Will & Testament first, among other things, as I've told you before}{because I'm a TERRIBLE person} Besides, you're better distant.
I'll be sure to read it

this bit reminds me of Lost in Translation...just thought I'd add that.

I concur with UndertheShaydeWood. You seem to have a way with using unorthodox terms and imagery and focusing them into your point, even if it seems they don't want to be focused. Ah, words.
