Broken crayons,
She drew new universes
On empty walls

And there she lies
Flowers as her tombstone
On the unmarked grave

falls down to
a freeze frame

Lying in the pine
I breathe in the cold, fresh air
It pierces my lips

curled up winter
cold wraps around
words on pages

Gold gliding softly down
Burning and captivating reds
Bare wood spires
