be calm, my heart

by hiraeth   Apr 22, 2017

her eyes are typhoons –
swirling with it,
the smothered baby’s breath
& swallow’d flights of blackbirds.

the foaming sea laps
her lashes willingly,
craving dissolution;

as loud as the sea wails,
it was never meant to

    Some writers can create huge impact with their far away unique writing skills. You are one of them. The wordings and the power of imaginary of grief coming forth from this poem is quite remarkable. You have a great thinking skill. Well done on this.

    Dear heavens, that imagery is amazing. The more I read this, the more I feel like it's my own story, and I have this certainly emotional heaviness about me. Very, very moving piece.

    What a dear heart goes through when beauty
    stands in front knowing just the flapping of the
    eye lashes can turn a world upside down! Your words
    painted a breath taking image!

    The vastness of imagery, the poetical vision, the artistic inspiration of this little piece is overwhelming, and I haven't been overwhelmed for so long.
    I might critically analyse this brilliant piece later on, if the mood strikes.
