I looked up at the sky
for I was innocent and fearlessAnd the sky opened herself to me and showed me glorious things.
Things of sunshine
Things of green
Things of life and light and lovelies uncountable.And everything was bright and beautiful.
I looked with the longing on a child, my scarlet hair ﬂying in the wind.
I drank with reckless abandon, caring not for the cliche.
In my hunger.
In my desire.
In passion, pure and pleasured.Oh, it was good.I looked up at the sky
feared.For the sky had died.
Cold.Silent stony streams with ﬂowed dryly beneath me.
I tilted my head to the heavens, lips parted in desire for something loved and lost.
Hair torn by unknown hands, dipped in oil I could not rinse.My thirst abandoned me.
and my hunger
blah.Twit. Twitter. Tweet.
Red, ﬂitting and ﬂying about.
It landed before me, upon the crooked ﬁnger of a branch clinging to life.
