thrown from the tip of my soul
skimming mortal puddles

  3. Ah yes, I struggled so with the stones, so poetry like indeed, as was that large light so brightly screaming.... but I went without them all, but this short and sweet stones throw, works wonders! Great magpie.

  5. Yes! Your words pair perfectly with the image...but I do believe they stand excellently on their own as well.

There was a haunting beauty behind her eyes, beyond her sorrow, a beauty that found its way into one’s heart and led them home.

I am
the final victor
your ash
soaked
in the skin
of my boots
