43 (who?)

The heart, is an origami fold.
Emotions spooling miles of thread
Dangle me from:
                        The apex of a leaf [with a thousand veins to spare]
                        Half a moon          [still flooding oceans not with tungsten spots]
                        Window panes      [broken of its glass holding together dirty fingerprints]
                        strips of sky          [cold but easy on my lips]

I split.
Becoming twins:
One to take my pulse!
Roots coagulate,
Thickening my plot.
As the earth clots,
A mole(cule) that makes mountains.

21 years a single leaf fell making me
a fool covered in foliage.
I’ve fallen from
                                           &  High wooden beds
                                           as my hair fell from my                                   

El divine complex has ripped
Off my heavy wings
like a used car sale..
I became slightly bored..
                      Then solid ground!
                    My heart beats 3 times louder
                  Than any fell tree in a wood

(With no one around)

This is how..
..The heart, folds.
poem and a drawing.

Very beautiful. I wish I dared be so experimental. Often when I have read other poems that purport to be experimental they just seem to be going through the motions strange line breaks, brackets everywhere, but yours have a purpose and add to the meaning and mood of the poem.

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D. feature :winner:! congrats! :clap:
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure (and ALSO, to show off people who I think are undeniably talented in their own genre of art, REGARDLESS of their #'s of fav's or pageviews. I like what I like and sometimes artwork isn't featured in the regular DDs because it's popular all on it's own It's a shame, but the admins are only trying to be fair! ). Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! xoxo Stef xoxo :w00t!:
