From the Pocket of a Dream


With a soul wrapped in twilight, her wings of perfume, spread for the last time, gently kissed the horizon.

Nothing to regret.
No one to blame.
No man’s memory to belong to.

Her bird eyes shone with diamonds dripping to the ground.

If she had a heart
it would be broken.

    crocodile tears! nice little piece here.
    makes me (the reader) want to know more about her.
    very arresting choice of descriptive words used.
    good job.

    O. this is so my heart’s true poem. and the illustration is so
    making me lose my mind. a bird cage[i collect them] with
    rose petals swimming around and that dress & gloves …O.

    love it,

    vivid capture of a state of mind, in a way, that is true and could be heart breaking.

    Cold, clean, and final…..Her bird eyes shone with diamonds dripping to the ground…..a great line, very vivid.

    That sounds like you’ve been picking up inside my mind these days … therefore I kind of sympathize and love it, despite the sad melody between the lines!
