When A Dreamers Head Caves In [Reading]What kind of dreamerWhen A Dreamers Head Caves In [Reading] by Epicaracacy
Clasps a ball and chain while they stick their head in the clouds
Imagine a writer exclaiming to the world how books are their passion
With their most beloved book in one hand, and a lighter in the other.
The bloodcurdling scream as they burnt their library to the ground.
And ran in after it to write their last word.
I've seen artists accompany the mona lisa to the shredder
And musicians snapping records with a guitar.
I've seen dreamers fall from clouds so high
I'm surprised they could ever fly at all.
I've heard of the most beautiful birds getting their wings clipped
But I could never have thought when given the shears they'd clip themselves
I suppose a bird stuck in heavy traffic forgets it can fly.
Perhaps a dreamer can't dream while wide awake
18 hours a day writing word after word of pure fact.
While all the cages around them clasp their hands together with something they call reality.
"Reality"? It's so frayed and worn they've broken through countless times.
Your Rainbow HaloFireflies were scattered across your face back whenYour Rainbow Halo by Epicaracacy
Lighting up rooms that otherwise sat in darkness then.
Though those lightning bugs couldn't compare to that brilliant smile.
It would hide behind friends, parents and teachers for a while.
But when I caught a glimpse of those grinning lips,
It spread like sunlight, ending the eclipse.
A rainbow halo surrounds this brilliant light.
Melting the dark clouds hiding from sight.
One word would start a wildfire in my soul.
My wasteland of a heart becomes whole.
Those fireflies now flitter through my veins.
Filling up my clouds and evaporating the rain.
You've sown sunflower seeds in seeping hearts.
And taught them to glow bright from within.
Sometimes I worry
You'll waste your last ones on me.
But it's been years,
The flowers grow swift as the tempest.
You've grown them in your heart,
And your love has proved endless.
Your sunflower heart
Blooming rainbows in the dark.
Moving On (To Brighter Clouds)The lightning shook him for months.Moving On (To Brighter Clouds) by Epicaracacy
The cauliflower field in the sky tearing up.
An earthquake in the heavens and he was caught amongst.
It rained red for weeks on end.
Some nights clear but with a horrible stench.
Like a gas station, it left a foul taste in his mouth.
Although even on those nights red stained the corners of the world
Just outside his vision.
He jumped from cloud to cloud, his body he would hurl.
Not knowing whether he'd hit home or fall.
Daylight was never in sight.
And the nights,
he was a shivering heap.
Sometimes the rain from his eyes poured,
heavier then the terrifying world around him while the earth snored.
He wished he'd clipped his wings on solid ground.
It was too late now.
He'd let hell break out around him.
He watched the fire light beneath.
My fingers clasped pure white.
That wondrous tingle, after clambering through ice.
I stood on the edge of sunlight.
A river of tears ran down my cheek
And I dropped to the ground my knees weak,
I clasped this bed
