The Nonsense Poet, 16-20
Two people dance and sway in the night
The boy tells the girl to look in his eyes
In his arms, she trembles and tries not cry
She knows it’s the last night they’ll have in this life
The girl watches this dream, wonders who they are
Then she sees herself, and he’s holding her heart
She never knew how much pain it would bring them to part
Not ‘til the moment under the stars…
Mercy so relentless it died a criminal’s death
Love so jealous it overcame every rival for her heart
Throwing death itself into a grave
Rose a king, robed in blood to wash her clean
The difference between rebellion
and perfect obedience
She lives in His death
18. just an ordinary moth
under the moon
now a cocoon
i will bloom soon.
suspended in sky
i’ll open my eye
then i will fly.
Some is real, some is not.
You decide what is what.
Flip pages like an open door—
That’s what Anna’s madness’s for.
20. wingéd creatures
Faster and faster and faster I go
The swifter I fly the shorter I grow
One day I’ll be gone, I’ll just disappear
But at least I’ll have known this flight without fear
