take me and cut me out in little stars

orion's belt

June 8, 2021



-- to my stars --

i hate to see you hurting;
    for you the sunset weeps in pale pink
and veils the moon with mist-streaks.
    may i take your hand? if i can
i'll walk you to a resting place
    and your world can disappear.
you don't have to force a smile to your eyes
    (the sky is dark, it hides what you want
to hide).

let me be your garden, love, i'll protect you
    within my walls, let you forget
the world until you're ready to face it.

-- from the sky --

    Re: thank you so much for the comment, and I'm so glad you liked my poem!

    This piece is so soft and beautiful :)) I especially like the lines
    "for you the sunset weeps in pale pink
    and veils the moon with mist-streaks."

    The whole feel of this piece is just so cozy and warm, like a mother's embrace or a lullaby. Just the ambiance of it is serene and I can't help but smile reading this. It evokes such soft imagery, the patting of a baby's back as it sleeps, the creaking of a rocking chair, the light filtered through the blinds, the dust settling floating in the sun, it's just so soft and comfy. I just feel so embraced and homey in this piece and I adore that. I love how your words carve into my heart and imprint themselves there, I love how you make me feel your words through and through, and I love how every time I can't help but fall irrevocably in love with them time and time again. Gorgeous my darling constant :)

    Oooh, this is so beautiful! And when you realize it's the sky talking to the sun, mmm! O love this. I agree with Busssy.Beee, it does feel motherly and genuine. Great job!
    Replying: Oh my gosh, thank you so much! You're so nice! I didn't win the comp, which is disappointing, but you know, you win some you lose some. Thanks!

    yessss when i hit my growth spurt i literally needed new clothes so often but i hate hate hate shopping so i just kept wearing them until my parents were like "ok we're dragging you to the mall" so XD ok wait the not wanting to buy clothes but complaining you have none is literally the most relatable thing EVER
    aw no don't worry about not checking ur email often enough haha i'm v inconsistent w replies and stuff lol like i keep saying "i'll check that tonight" and promptly forget *sighhh*
    yesss naming bikes! i actually didnt name my bike...i'll see it's brand and try to come up w one LOL
    omgggg im so excited for your book to come outttt dude i'm 100% gonna buy it ahhh that's so exciting and this summer??? i cant wait!!! and new content too!!!!!! lmk when it's out cause imma hop onto amazon the moment i receive the news :D
    my weeks been pretty good...pretty basic i'd say cause its just fitting summer hw, music theory, and practicing piano into the day bc i have the exams coming up (theory + piano) and i need to study...and then in the afternoon i have work w the doggos so its like how to squish my schedule LOL oh anddddd i found out the library's open for browsing (not for sitting down and reading though) but thats super exciting!!!! i borrowed like 6 books but been kinda busy btwn all the things i need to do but hopefully over the weekend it'll be a bit better (cause no work on fri, sat, sun haha) and so i can finally readddd im so exciteddd
    anyway yes and right back to you--have a wonderful day, my friend!!! <3 <3 <3
    p.s. cola and all the other doggos say hi to tully and finn! Doggo (yes there's a dog named "doggo"...jumped up on my shoulders and asked me to tell you he sends a big big hug to you. and a kiss, although there was a mask LOL <3

    re: hiiiiii how was thine first day of summer? hope it went well :D
    omg no that doesnt sound creepy at all haha yes yes that seriously sounds really fun!! do you wanna exchange emails/connect somewhere out of wtw to make it easier? lmk your thoughts ofc dont wanna seem v forward and all so yea!
    haha well congrats on surviving econ this year!!! dude that sounds wayyyy too smart for me lol i was stuck w algebra 2 (*sigh*)
    omg lol sameeee everytime i clear out my room i find like a thousand shirts im just hoarding and i just donate it all and i feel so productive and then i dont buy anything else but then like a year later i find another 50 shirts? like what-- i dont think shirt donations work this way but apparently it does LOL
    ooo yes yes i read the book!! our school did it as a play so i didnt know theres a musical! oooooo good luck (break a leg!) in the audition--i hope you get the role you want as well!!!
    yes yes the doggos there are so cuteeee they're like huge and i'll go in to their kennels to fill up their water bowls (they do boarding/day care so gotta refill their water) and they're super happy to see you and they'll jump up and put their hugeeee paws on my shoulders (cause again, im shOrt) and like give me a bear hug. its the cutest thing ever loll. (ofc i hafta do the dirty work, clean up after the dogs, etc but like THEYRE SO CUTEEEE) awww tullyyyy she seems super high-energy and cuddly at the same time, makes me think she'll run around the yard and do zoomies and jump and get buried in the snow and hten run into the house super dirty and try to be a lap doggo and then i think finn is just super chill, he's probably like "bruh tully pls get off of me...i just wanna sleep. my old bones cant handle you" LOL . tell me if i got any of that right cause at this point im just imagining haha
    sending love, as always!! enjoy your summerrr!!! <3 <3

    oomggg this is so beautiful ell ughhhh howwwww it's literally so gorgeous like "for you the sunset weeps in pale pink / and veils the moon with mist-streaks." and "you don't have to force a smile to your eyes / (the sky is dark, it hides what you want / to hide)." and also the whole last stanza omg this is so beautiful ell.
    ok uh i literally just copy and pasted the piece into this comment so ermmm yea sorry about that but i really really really love this whole thing. and also i just wanna appreciate the formatting bc its just so fitting ahhhhhh aklsjdf;a;sldkfj
    re: lol ok i was literally gonna delete that part or like rewrite it but 1) brain-thoughts at night (or at anytime, for that matter) are literally non-existent (see above comment if you want an example) and 2) i figured you'd understand hahahaha and you did! so thank you for that :D and yep i so agree i feel like we'd talk as though we've been childhood friends and like known each other for forever haha
    i'd so love to go camping with you please dooooo
    hehe just got boba today :) as i said, my family basically runs on boba cause its that amazing LOL oh and also seriously just saying if you come to ca and happen to visit me you should visit mir too (*wink wink*) and we can all get boba together!!!! ok yes i've revised your bucket list now hehe
    well by the time you see this it'll be 1 day left, and maybe you'll be done already, so either you can do it!! i'm rooting for you from across the country <3 or congrats on finishing freshmen year!!!!!!! ooooo yes rearranging the room and changing room decor. i should probably do that haha i have so much junk which i tend to keep for "memories" but then i forget the reason why i have it in the first place but i'm just too clingy to let go, yk?
    oooo which musical? lmk how it goes!!!
    yep this is my 2nd week of summer (we end the week before memorial day which was actually really late this year but oh well haha) sooo been catching up on all the sleep i missed during the school year and doing summer hw (plenty to do ughhh) and piano and music theory exams are coming up...yea just stuff like that. pretty typical. i'll be starting volunteering at this doggo training site where they also do daycare and boarding and stuffs like that so im kinda excited cause more doggos!!!!! ok haha i think this is a vvv long comment (hopefully you're not too overwhelmed, if you are sorry!!) and yea! luv you!! <3 <3 <3

    re: you might call me crazy, but fo you remember i kept teasing my metaphor fr the usage of stars throughout my first collection? well the secret was; the khamoidao are star thieves; the stars are meant to be everything that could plague a person negatively, and they will steal it from their 'sky', or memory. I found humans to be fickle, mad when they received help, so i wrote the concept. <3
