Terra Levez Aug 26
A broken swing on the old oak tree
A scrap of blue fabric holding it together
Messy braids on a head
Wrapped in thin blankets
The wind howls
Moans at the broken glass
The tears in her eyes
The scars, they were here to stay
I wish we could too

The fabric frays
The swing finally falls
The wind keeps howling
howling
and howling
Terra Levez Aug 26
The music ends
And yet the symphony has just begun
Everyone leaves us
Some run, some fall
But we stayed
And slowed danced in this burning room
Some called this misery
We called it home
inspired from an Instagram challenge... yes i copied from another person's verse a bit.
Terra Levez May 16
Hope is the thing with dandelions
For all their delicacy
And for every time they are an Unwanted
A ****
After the fiercest gale
We think that is all
They are gone
And yet every seed makes its way
To every nook and corner
Delicacy, Fragility
Like drifting through a river all your life
Carry on, carry on
Terra Levez May 16
Sorrow found me when I was young
Sorrow waited
Sorrow won
This is originally a quote from a song by the National.

The story that I love you
It has no end
A quote from one of my favorite series
this line never gets old
Terra Levez May 14
We open the halves of a miracle
an extract from the poem Ode to a Lemon by Pablo Neruda
Terra Levez May 14
you may have left me
saying that to believe in love is childish
but i didnt believe in it
until you came

you opened up a chasm in me
and when you left, i feared its depths
rather than exploring its meadows

when i fell
i only saw the ground
and i forgot to open my wings
this wasnt meant to be sad
it was meant to convey the beauty i was blind to, the love that i felt not from another but from myself. it was so beautiful, but i forgot it when he left.
now when im realizing it all over, with no one other than me, its so so beautiful to be alone and free.
