Everlasting Words

by Xanthe   May 18, 2012


She sat beneath
her rose ice-cream tree
quietly,
patiently
drowning her sadness in
his brown or blue paradise;
just as my
Everlasting words sat
at the tip of my tongue
quietly,
patiently
waiting to be spoken.

Alas!
The caramel
burnt her own tongue
for lingering
there too long.
I gave her my spare cup
but no water
ran through
to wash away the soreness.
Instead,
all she found was a
cockroach.

And now,
she paints the breeze
with words stolen
from my own mouth
because she has finally
confessed
to be the
Thief of Words.

For no one else but Lucero (Everlasting for all those who don't know -.-)

    How clever! I liked how you structured this piece with the line breaks and punctuation. This was a personal dedication to someone that everybody can enjoy because it was crafted so beautifully.
