You ever bite your tongue,
to not hurt someone with the truth?

You bite down even harder,
knowing it's only hurting you.
Pepper Dove Oct 2020
The taste of pennies
in her mouth
As she continues
to bite

Her lips
Her cheeks
and her
Tongue

Holding back
So others
can
Breathe

All the while
she
Bleeds

The sun set fire to the autumn trees
Good evenning tease
Before the wind takes the leaves

Cotton candy clouds blanket the sky
Kissing childlike eyes
Before saying goodnight

Whispering moon slips into the night
Collecting bad dreams
Before allowing for fright

Heavy lids fall, lashes kissing both cheeks
Seperating worlds
Before the alarm clock piques
Take in as much beauty as you can
before you lay down to sleep.
Pepper Dove Oct 2020
A droplet of water
Peers over the edge
Slithering
Quivering
Slowly inching towards death

Slipping
Not resisting
To fall into a mess

Gone missing
Yet followed
By all of the rest

I miss those long talks
    
       filled with random thoughts

I miss the mystery
    
      in connecting your dots
Pepper Dove Sep 2020
All that beauty
Beaming in perfect light
Cascading shadows of mystery
But nobody sees
The beauty in the mystery
Of the eyes behind the lens
Pepper Dove Sep 2020
When hopes and dreams
Are soon to come
I rise to face
The morning sun
Just when you think you will soon fall asleep, the sun decides to come out.
