One day I’ll learn to see them as the relation between fantasy and reality. (backgrounds by me)

From Thorns To Flowers

Inspired by @fantastic06

I walk between the thorns and flowers

hiding

hiding a past-flavoured pill

hiding a past-flavoured pill in my trembling, moist palms

staring at the whitewashed moon

at the whitewashed moon

glaring at the whitewashed moon-

a redolent drone of nightmares

sweeping over

sweeping over my bleeding existence.

Perhaps you were right about the sun

Perhaps you were right about the sun being ashamed of his sins.

He’s been gone for so long

He’s been gone for so long, even the stars

He’s been gone for so long, even the stars have begun to miss him now.

They’re blemished

They’re blemished, sunburnt.

Almost as if

Almost as if the moon

Almost as if the moon is too tattooed

Almost as if the moon is too tattooed with her own thorns

to wear her favourite

to wear her favourite perfume of pride.

She weeps like a melting diamond.

Please

Please don’t wake me from this

Please don’t wake me from this sempiternal sleepwalk

for after

for after I severed

for after I severed my relation with reality,

you

you taught me

you taught me to wear thorns

you taught me to wear thorns with pride.

Scraping my spine,

splaying open my sinews,

these thorns remind me

these thorns remind me of the flower

these thorns remind me of the flower I’ll soon blossom into.

And what a flower I’ll be

And what a flower I’ll be.

And what a flower I’ll be..

And what a flower I’ll be...
