Log in

my mind my love my time my life the bloom. my past my past
the rain king - you were right about the stars
each one is a setting sun
the rain king
red, red, red leaves
on the wet pavement she perceives.
Behind her, unknowingly,
flowers frame her face like glasses.

She walks to classes,
passing fancies,
unaware, like the flowers,
of smouldering glances.

You and your absent attention,
your world stuck in spider-web suspension
see only the color of the sidewalk's leaves
reminding you of a childhood game you'd like to play again.

So in your weightless head
you ask the red rover
to send me running
full speed into your determined arms.

Music: Sufjan Stevens - Holland (despite the title of this poem)

Lovely, as always. I really like the line "your world stuck in spider-web suspension."

(Typo in the last line, though.)

thanks and thanks. There was also another typo that I caught earlier on. It said, "the read rover".

Beautiful and a bit nostalgic.

By the way, you looked surprised by discovering the truth about the stars ;)
