drink in lamp black skies / no our lungs will not darken / they'll be filled with all the stars / that drag tourists out from beds that they paid to sleep in /

roasted potatoes eaten from the pan / salty fingers grab history books from wooden shelves / unforgettable smile / sacred / prisms can't unfold the spectrum of your heart

feed the fireplace / sparks fly into your howlite blue eyes / golden flecks dance in the broken skies that were laid into those diamonds

    Hello, dear! Thank you ever so much for the encouragement and of course I remember you :)
    I'm glad I was able to speak up for the community, I'm glad you appreciated it. I want to tell you that it's totally okay to be daunted by tasks like those, but in the end what it comes down to is this: who will do it, if not you? So, if you do choose to speak out, know that no matter what happens, I back you 100%. And if you stay quiet, I back that too. Loudness isn't for everyone <3
    Thank you for being such a sweet, lovely, and positive presence here!
    All the best <3

    Gorgeous descriptions! I love the line "golden flecks dance in the broken skies that were laid into those diamonds".

    woah this is beautiful! esp the first stanza, "they'll be filled with all the stars / that drag tourists out from beds that they paid to sleep in", also a really apt title!

    This is so beautiful! I especially love "they'll be filled with all the stars / that drag tourists out from beds that they paid to sleep in" and "prisms can't unfold the spectrum of your heart,' although I think that in the latter, 'no prism can' would work better than simply 'prisms.'
