poem: "a stage and a flame"




a stage and a flame


even when you pull back the curtain
everything is blue and hazy
I'd walk that distance
but I don't dare hop those velvet ropes.

did I hallucinate the patterns I remember?
my dreams bleed into reality; ink kissing water
my memories twist into new shapes, laughing

you burn
like a coal or maybe a comet
(I couldn't dream of a star).

I really adore the last stanza especially, not being able to dream of a star.

Hi. My name is Mandy. I ran across you on curvygirls a long time ago. I looked through your LJ and I really find you to be fascinating. Would you like to be LJ friends?
