Poetry On Odyssey: We're Like Flames

your glit blonde silk stands out in a crowd of ordinary blondes

skin like ivory tiles on a grand piano

base notes of cinnamon musk and amber patchouli

you are completely delectable

you make me a true gourmand


we are both victims in this era of forgotten


in the sound of your laughter

the silver strings of a harp start its melody

each time your tears fall

they form a sharp, crashing chord

every moment with you carries a bittersweet resonance from a dozen violas


we were living the dreams


I would forsake the rest

allow them to quench their thirst from my rubies

while we lick each other's wounds

while the cold ashes slowly melt into thin air


we finally extinguished us

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements. I can assure that all tall people are tired of being asked what the weather is like "up here", but here are a few other things we don't want to hear anymore.
