Hallowed Echoes

Endless loops of your voice replay

Like petals unfurling

In no particular order and all together

I’m drawn in, sweet nectar 

The words fill my ears creating imbalance in the Eustachian equilibrium 

Drunken and unable to comprehend their meaning 

But so familiar and… so good for that matter

A ringing tinnitus that only softens with my confusion

I return to fetal sleep, float in the sounds of these dreams

And in my wake

Smell the flowers to which you once tended 

Cerulean delicacy 

Fragile droplets leave the glimmer of salt 

The eyes will not feast while the heart hungers

As petals fallen to the ground will surely wither

I thought I was the ground awaiting your return

But I am the roots that will dry up

Long after your befallen beauty

      1. It is! It makes a lot of sense honestly and I enjoyed reading your explanation. I’m a very inquisitive person and I love knowing the inner workings of others. I think your choice is very fitting and creative . I can understand being a night owl. I have anxiety and ADHD so sometimes my mind keeps me up no matter how much writing or exercise I do in a day lol. It can be rough but it’s awesome that you use your situation to create 🙂 thanks for responding ! It’s lovely chatting


    1. I’m glad you think so! What I can’t put on a canvas I try to in words. I really enjoyed your piece by the way. Especially the lines

      “I let it flow by me.

      I’m so above this nonsense,
      I’m almost walking on water”

      There was a lot of personality and I loved how you remained respectful yet above the other characters immorality, but that reference in particular was so creative!!


      1. Aw thank you so much and thank you for stopping by 🙂 I cn understand completely what you mean. I can paint ok at times but not really well so I try to do the same with my writing but I also try to change my writing too and try different styles. Sometimes the rhythum comes naturally from somewhere I can’t identify ( by your writing I can tell you’ll understand) and other times I’ll

      2. Other times I have to just start writing . I often try to write from a different perspective when I write, either from an animal or object or mischievous spirit, or another person . It’s very enlightening and I learn a lot about others and myself in doing that . 🙂 writing is such a release .
