Fading Away

in her eyes swim
stars and sky’s sadness
an ocean of veils
summer’s brutal lusts
and a touch
of the forests of whimsy
from her eyes fall
amber-coated memories
and delicate rainbow fancies
darkness swells
her eyes close
a bed of salted dream dust
rolls down flushed cheeks

  1. I missed the raw emotions you put into your workssss :’).
    I’m looking forward to when I finally find enough time to get up to speed with your newer posts.
    It’s been quite some time, hasn’t it? I hope you’re doing well, Tara ❤️.
