A beckoning:
watercolour sky shrinking,

too late, teeth fall; pearls
from a broken string.
Blink and the moon ignites—

but the sheets are still
envelope-stiff.

That's sad... my english isn't good enough to catch the meaning of this as a whole... would you mind describing it to me in a different way, please? Just, if it's not too much work. :S

This is quite an abstract piece, so don't worry - I don't think your English skills are to blame for not quite understanding it. :) This poem was written after a really bad fight with someone I care about very much, so I guess it's more of an accumulation of anger and sadness rather than any actual meaning. I hope that helps explain a bit. :heart:

Beautiful! I agree with ~TheMoorMaiden: there is a kind of haunting loneliness to this poem, which is summed up really nicely in those last two lines. I love the hint of a story here. :heart:

There's something haunting about this, it has a lovely, lonely kind of feeling to it. I love the lines:

teeth fall; pearls
from a broken string. :heart:

Beautiful piece.

Very pretty, maybe even a little morbid or sorrowful. Your poetry always sounds like a prophecy, some mystic riddle to be deciphered. Or maybe a legend, ancient words passed down from generation to generation so none may forget the tale of this myth. As always it's beautiful
