Fairy tales are more than true. Not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten. -G.K. Chesterton

Run you said.


Your streetlight eyes
Gleaming through the night.
I would’ve listened,
But my feet were stuck to the pavement
And my heart had gone dead.


You said it again
The word fell off your blunt,
Sullen tongue.
Foreign and familiar.
Bleeding but alive,
On your chaste breath.

Just run.

“Be very careful if you make a woman cry, because God counts her tears. The woman came out of a man’s rib: Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved.”

live laught love

hope is love and forgivness

live life as if you die tomorrow

Nothing matters more than those who depend on you, emotionally or physically. Even if the situation is life or death, you have to be there for them, because they need you.

Beautiful work!! (I know you know that, given that everyone else has said it, but still.) I love the description, and the spacing. It gives the poem great tone! Keep writing!

Life isn't measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments which take your breath away.

You are only as strong as your weakest link.

Beautiful poem, with wonderful description! (your streelight eyes, etc)
