petals of ice...

The stars have come out to play tonight
Glimpsing through prisms of rose-shaded dreams
Willing wishes to bloom
In a universe we call our own,
You and I have sketched eternity.
The remains of broken hearts that have
Chased the wind,
The old sequins that have lost their shimmer
Eternity has come and gone.
Roses wilt, new buds hold promise
Floating on the tide of time,
We tread on petals of ice.
The resilient material hunger,
Paralysing the soul with a stormy embrace.
Friendships falter in
The war of acceptance.
Swept up by dark waves to unforgiving shores.
Curtains fall, the lights fade,
The world buys your act
Playtime’s over.
Stars watch on, the clocks count the seconds lost.
And another rose wilts to soon in
The garden of faith.

Girl, another rose wilts too soon...that line always gets me, i dont know why! whenever i think of your poetry this one always comes to mind first 'cos it was one of the first few you emailed me. And that line has always stuck in my head. i think it sounds very shimmery and magical. oh and glimpsing through prisms of rose-shaded dreams also engenders awe in me. Try saying that line fast, btw. :) if we did this poem in school, diva would have jumped up and said "assonance, assonance!" your poetry is like those 6-pack mini-boxes of cereal-different flavours and colours and there's something for everyone :) missing you...
