you decided a long
time ago, a long time
before it affected your
sight to remember me -
before it throbbed
inside you when someone
uttered my three-syllable
name; oh Tangerine -
that only will you
fight when I widened
the perimeters of
your sore-sighted faults.

you didn't know yet, no-
you were only
suckling at the idea of
changing the world and
looking down at my crawling endeavors
to walk before my
patellas were ready.
I heard them scream
when I was seven, the skin
above them reddened with
the purple of a betrayed
bruise.

sweet lover, does the color wheel
work backwards where I'm from? I was already
so cold, spinning like
the rebellion of an odd
tiny magnet in a terrorist
field. my darling,

do the Sufis miss my
sleepless, praying nights to you?
do they
tell my stories still, even
after you disappeared? my love,
do they still wait
for death to follow me?

you were always gold; summer
skeletons lay still and dusted
in my closet for you. I did not
leave you in my being, my dear, nor

did we part from our crossroads;
our bend in the road stays
stranded where I am, still
half-baked and incomplete

the way your
faults and mine concur
and conquer all that is left
of our frivolous
stay.











        is the same in our hearts.

I took a leave from your poetry because it touches me too deeply for me to control my reactions, but oh how I missed losing myself in the loves of your words.

Elegant and pretty... as said by ButterflyTorn, I instantly thought of The Fault in Our Stars.

Yeah, the Fault in Our Stars was okay, it just wasn't as touching I guess. I mean I really liked it, but it didn't really get in my feels, you know? :/

No problem!

I guess death doesn't faze me that much. I had experienced enough by then to not cry like I did with Rue. Though there were some feels, though.

I just think it's because people are different, you know? I'd say I've seen and had very close people (a great many too) who I've lost to disease and other things too but it still hurt in its familiarity. I grew very attached to Hazel and her loss felt like mine so that's probably why I have such a soft spot for it.

(I'm sorry for all your losses, my dear. :tighthug:)

Yeah, I actually haven't lost that much, just my sister and cat/friend (and mutual friends). My musical great-granddad hasn't been doing well and we might be going to a funeral. But I'm praying and I am not thinking of him that way.

I'm sorry for your losses, too. In the end, I think it's a gain, because I am a full-on Christian and I believe they've been saved from this Earth and I am so proud of them. They're angels and I'll see them again. Sorry if that offended you!

nothing gold can stay..

This speaks to me,

Oh, have you read the fault in our stars? I don't know why but this makes me think back to it so much.
Maybe it's the classic tragic love story, and I'm just a sucker for them.

yes, I have :heart: but this was largely inspired by Derrick Brown's work. I wanted to spin one of his hopeful, romantic pieces into...well, me, haha. I'm so glad you like it. :hug:

have you read more books by John Green?

Well you certainly succeed. Hug

I have read looking for Alaska and paper towns, the other two didn't really speak to me. ^^;
