if i plucked the moon from the studded
wallpaper that is the sky, would you
still be able to find me in the stars?

no. but i still search for you in the tangled
spiderwebs that connect the walls to
the horizon's edges and the smeared
whispers leeching under the doorstep.

if only fools fall in love, then they'd
say we're the greatest mishap since
Shakespeare. but i'm fine with that
because i

can't help falling in love with you.
[EDIT] Cut out second stanza:
if i set sail for the hot-air balloon
clouds and only reach the autumn
blimps, would the sun dip into the
settling leaves?


Thoughts? :D

Bonus points to anyone who knows the song the last line comes from!

I was stalking other writers' Galleries and found these gems, which this is partially inspired by:

in terminusyou say my timeline is infinitesimal
when compared to your hourglass
anatomy; a never ending cycle ticking
time away like a metronome, and
again gravity refuses to bend for me;
i cannot see the fault lines in our skies
any longer. my crystal ball is cloudy,
filled to the brink of destruction --
your broken words and the obscure
misology that is to be our fate.
 by DrippingWords
TelluriumCradle your fever head, sweet
(antiquated,
lovelorn) boy--
spin me into your pirouettes, dear;
write me into an anthem.
 by counting-vertebrae

I salute you two. :salute:

Written as a response to a request by Bakugan5Ds , who requested 'really romantic love'. Not inspired by anything personal, because I know I've not found true love.</span>
