115 (who?)

I have a bouquet of light
of shattered sunrays
that shun those
whose rose is not as rubicund
or whose cerulean is only slightly sea-green-stained.

Slice up the white
and imprison it in sardine cans
and push the plungers home.

But no matter how much you may try
the result is death;
for you've frayed the perfect threads
beyond repair
And only dried minerals and plasma
some darker version of the cosmic latte concentrated.


My heart is a prism.
All that's around me
is cold
and bleak
some hibernating humming
frozen beneath the winter's coat.

And inside,
I must be a time machine,
because I cannot abide this monochrome much longer.
And I've sprung forward to spring.

I'm seizing the icicles
that drip from the pallid clouds
and stripping them
and cutting them
and setting them

and in my heart they are transcribed
and flowers bloom
in the rumination of the sunlight.

I'm bursting;
a host to the aquatic fermentation
and I sip this bouquet
an imitation of the future,
slipping into some trip
where colors regurgitated on paper
turn into white.

i am the equinox.
i have no idea.

i'm just all in a creative mood today.  i fear that i may start drawing this picture i've been putting off because its subject material is somewhat questionable but..... it's what i feel.

i really need to study for my microbiology midterm on thursday.

i put this in nature because i honestly have no idea what this is.

20 minutes. unedited.

EDIT: A GINORMOUS THANK YOU!!!! to :icondanielleivanova: for suggesting this and to :icongrimface242: for featuring it!!! go check out the former's amazing piece inspired by this poem -->… :love:

Well, like all poetry, the meaning is open to interpretation by the reader.

However, when I was writing it, there were three things on my mind.  Firstly, I was staring down at a bunch of sharpies I was organizing.  I'm a very science-minded individual and that may account for some of the light- and color-related metaphors that wove their way into the poem.  Secondly, it was winter still when I wrote this and I was getting tired of the endless snow and ice and lack of color and life.  And thirdly, I was talking to my friend (who became my boyfriend four days later) and I think some of the inspiration draws from the (at that point) suppressed feelings for him.
