The girl bled yellow rays of sunshine
Underneath rainbow sherbet skies
She never let gray clouds drown her
For she was a dandelion soul
I can feel the chill in the air
The sharp sting like lightning shooting through my veins
Shivers deep down into the bone
The smell of leaves falling from their branches
Landing like colorful tarps strewn across the ground preparing to protect it from a harsh winter
The cool orange sun sets early these days
So the stars can shine brighter during longer nights
Entangling feelings of loss and renewal
A much needed cleanse for Earth and life
Seasonal reminders that we need to let go to be able to grow
Burn down my castle
I want someone to break through my walls
I am my own sacrificial lamb
Hung myself out to dry
Breathe new life into me
Because I’m dying here
I stand under a shroud of grey skies and heartache
Waiting patiently for the rain to fall
and the dams to break
Holding my umbrella at my side
I don’t shy away from the oncoming storm
Letting it wash away my sadness
Even if just for a day
It’s getting harder and harder to see the good in a world filled to the brim with the bad.
This evil flows freely through every crevice and crack, overfilling and overflowing into our lives as sure as sunshine.
When corrupting even the purest of hearts is so easy nowadays, where can we stand to get out of the fire?
How can we continue to walk forward when everything around us is burning to the ground?
I need help looking through the smoke, and learning to live with the heat.
Because this hell on Earth isn’t going away, it’s growing and claiming all that we love as it’s own.
I will continue to fly
Despite my broken wings
Stumbling towards the stars
Reaching for greater things
