Dark, fantasy /
White feathers, whisky and the sound of heaven,
Bluebirds, silk and cheap perfume.
Burnt out candles, wilted roses and an empty room,
Shattered glass, a ticking bomb and the number seven,
Crisp white sheets and crimson droplets,
Broken floorboards and flickering flames,
The willow tree where we carved our names,
and hanging from a branch, a silver locket
A crumpled photograph and lock of hair,
teddy bears and unwritten dreams,
A hospital room and echoing screams,
flowers at a grave and the lord’s prayer
Shallow breathing, sunlight and sirens
a man on his knees in front of his wife,
and the gun in his hand as he takes his own life
a single teardrop, black feathers and silence.

Honestly I can only shadow what Ben has said here and if he hadn't have nominated the piece I certainly would have.
