proud of this one! took two hours to write lol (about struggling to find words *how fitting*)

the longing of something too far to reach

you would sometimes find her

you would sometimes find her with her ears pressed

you would sometimes find her with her ears pressed to reflection pools

as sound was enveloped

as sound was enveloped within its letter

as sound was enveloped within its letter and mailed off

as sound was enveloped within its letter and mailed off to dead end conversations.

she would have

she would have embers within her iris

she would have embers within her iris and flowers woven

she would have embers within her iris and flowers woven into damp hair

much like the way the sun

much like the way the sun entwines in tapestries of clouds

much like the way the sun entwines in tapestries of clouds and how you could tell

and how you could tell when she stood over those

and how you could tell when she stood over those crashing waves,

she was begging

she was begging to be pushed in;

to fall over that edge

and into the swirling abyss

and into the swirling abyss of overused dictionaries

and into the swirling abyss of overused dictionaries to entangle

to entangle new syllables

into a cacophony of

into a cacophony of somehow musical sound.

and you could tell with the way

and you could tell with the way her eyes strayed

and you could tell with the way her eyes strayed to beautiful things

that she was contemplating

that she was contemplating the ability

that she was contemplating the ability to etch her body

that she was contemplating the ability to etch her body in echolocated van gogh stars

the way lost canvases

the way lost canvases would engrave itself

the way lost canvases would engrave itself in far off songs

was a testimony to all

was a testimony to all of her ability to become art.
