How to write all of me in less than 10 seconds?

Hmm, let me think... how about DREAMER?

Yup. That works.

I wish I could sing like an angel

I wish I could sing like an angel
Shimmering songs of pure sweet children's glee
I wish I could see the dear heavens
Whirling winds of joy with wings ready to flee

I wish I could be a perfect creation
A sculpted statue of beauty and grace
I wish I could smile and be happy for once
But I hide it away, eccedentesiast masks in its place

I wish I could fly higher than the stars
Stunning specks of moments in time, frozen
I wish I could stay and rest there forever
Just burning away in the blue, still broken

I wish I could bring back everything lost
The people, the life, the happy still beaming
I wish I could keep the tears buried inside
And stop the cracks and pain in my heart, red and bleeding.

    Replying: Yeah! You're absolutely right, a dust jacket is essentially a QnA (at least in my opinion), and thank you so much for your kind words and questions!

    I just wanted to say thank you to you for all your support and kindness. Recently I hit a milestone of 108 followers and I just wanted to personally extend my gratitude. It means so much to me that you'd read my work and give me that kind of support. You have no idea how much each notification from you meant and how much I've cherished it. It may have just been a click of a button to you, but it gave me so much confidence in myself as a writer and I cannot thank you enough for that. Thank you so much for all your kind words and support!
    (Also, I'm doing a dust jacket, so if you have any questions, send them my way!)

    I absolutely adore the imagery you craft here. There's just so much beauty in it and I am so infatuated with your diction.

    There's something so serene in this piece that just makes me smile. I love how you weave it all together, creating this lovely little picture of songs and longing. Each stanza is so wonderfully written, each one describing a different sense of longing and wanting of something and that just ties the piece together so well. Also, the use of the word eccedentesiast just made me smile, such brilliant diction.
