#Twiglet 296

she was all in favour
of diamond mining
ploughing the sky
for glitter
to stow in her pocket

she’d walk around
with the fuzz of it
like happiness 
brushing her fingertips

but when love’s eyes
were downcast
breaching the moon
she was alone
and the stars 
like used matches

hung unlit


written for Twiglet 296.  "unlit"

  1. Just absolutely bloody gorgeous, Worms!

    “she’d walk around
    with the fuzz of it
    like happiness”

    and that last line “hung unlit” out at sea like that, so effective. The composition of the photo is also amazing.
