Withered

Today, I found a flower
buried in the multitudes of poetry.
and I realise that
Petals outlived us.

Dark

And beautiful,
I know I never told you this.
But I am afraid of the dark.
Because that's when my monsters come out.

Woods

Sometimes, I wonder what I am looking for.
I stopped my hunt for everything else.
Then I remember,
I am looking for you, beautiful.

Because, beautiful, some time ago
 We lost our way in the woods.

Safe

Today, wherever I turn,
You haunt me.
A little piece of scrap,
where you once poured out your heart.
A card, not meant for me,
but I still keep it.
Beads, frayed in my hands
And they bleed.
It's like you won't go away today.
It's almost like you are still holding my heart.
It's like the day I gave it to you 
and you promised to keep it safe.

Roots

I don't think you have met me.
I am the girl,
The girl with floating roots. 
I don't think you know me.
I have scars on the tree trunks.
They are names. 
Names of people I left. 
Don't join that list.
Don't scrape your name in just yet.
I don't think it is time for me to fly yet.
Just yet.

Storm Cloud

You hit me like a storm.
Blind-sided, blinded
I couldn't breathe.

With you, I walked
On land that didn't exist.

Don't leave me like that.
I may drown.
I may drown on dry land.

Fairy Dust

She looked down.
The fairy dust was gone. 
She could no longer fly.

She looked up.
He was looking at her.

The magic hadn't faded just yet.
