[we are a near miss, a ledge i must stretch
past in order to keep climbing, and i know
i can't hang on to you tight this time. (i've
always known. i've always known....)]

my heart extended a slender finger and
slipped its half moon nail under the water,
and it remembered how it felt to beat so
hard it was sure to burst. it remembered
how to fill with air and become indented with
the imprints of ribs and lungs and light a
match we all thought was wood and ashes.
this time i bit my lip and gave in to the nothings
and the fireflies and the rawness in each
of my breaths - it was the only thing that's
kept me going.

once upon a time we drifted beside each
other under a sky filled with blowballs and
fire alarms, and we each dug up silk roses
from the space between us and placed
them in each others hands as we slipped
through packs and raced through labyrinths.

this time i stretched my wings and migrated
back home to you, just as you ruffled your 
feathers and prepared them to fly (towards
me!) we stopped each other in our tracks and
we meandered through this maze we're in. you
and i walked side by side, orbit by orbit, the
only two in the empty, and you pulsed and
shifted and glimmered so close to me that i could
feel it sinking back into my bones. (can you feel it
swirl around you too?) even now i wonder how
i manage(d) to say hello when i feel like we just
said goodbye...
HGRHBURHBJRKDFJKGHFDJKGHFDJKGHJKDSFKGFD I MUST HAVE REWROTE THIS LIKE TEN TIMES do you know how hard it is to try to write decent poems with writer's block you guys like it isn't even possible and i am...............a True Champion

Tomorrow is the fourth day of two things: a) school and b) the return of the sources of my inspiration!! QvQ Which is both a good thing and a bad thing for me but good for you guys because I'm pretty sure you're all anxious to read my poems?????????? which is just WOW!!!!!! but anyways... have another moon poem (not like most of the other ones haven't been moon poems, but i never really mentioned that in them!!) because it's been WWAYYYYYYYYYY too long since I've been able to do the poems i used to do before school got out. -explodes- -explodes louder- -gracefully pirouettes into active volcano because my eMOTIONS THEY'RE HAPPENING AGAIN GUYS YOU'RE GONNA BE WIPED OUT WITH A POETRY TIDAL WAVE MAYBE SOON POSSIBLY HOPEFULLY-

Oh and a few more things about this poem: When I last logged on here there was a deviation on the homepage titled something around the lines of "if only home wasn't so far" or something like that and I loved the name and i thought it sounded like a great title that would fit in with the concept of the poem i wanted to write so i.... i stole it oops fdkghjkgfdkjgdfh Also this poem was heavily inspired not only by real life events but the song Afterlife by Ingrid Michaelson, which happens to be my current theme song!!! So if you listen to that and read the lyrics of that song which are in the description and then read my poem (or vice versa???) then it should be more effective and emotional and yadayadayada pea you're blabbinG AGAIN (my favorite part is the bridge which really inspired the poem but there are other parts that work for this too!)

As always thank you so much for reading!!! I'm so honored that you guys have supported me so much and how do i have 30 watchers like woW THAT'S MORE THAN I EVER EXPECTED THANK YOUUUUUUUUU!!!! <3333333 And thank you for any potential support as well oh my gosh it makes my heart explode to see your loVEEEEEEEE <333333333 8'DDDDD

(Now that dA has incorporated tags into their system I'll be tagging all of my moon poems with #meandthemoon so if you search that you'll get to see all of them!! <33333)

You're very welcome! Gosh, this is so gorgeous. Thank YOU for writing it! ^^

Wow. Without that typo, this has reached 120% of perfection. My mind is starting to melt... ahhhhhhh you know what?! I'll print it out and hang it above my desk! Or I'll write it down into one of my notebooks to carry around... only if you're okay with that, of course.

(whaaaaaa noo I'll EXPLODE if you use my words in one of your poems, that'd be too great an honour! Really, I couldn't stand that.)
