The stars in her eyes
Reflect the grandiose dreams of
One who has seen it all, yet
Desperately hopes for more

Dreamer, is she
Creator of worlds beyond the seen
Harbinger of the doom or success
Of fictional creatures she hoards
In the depths of her mind’s palaces

Dreamer,
Lost and found again
Rejecting the hard cold truth for
A prison of faeries’ making
Buried deep beneath the intoxication
Of voraciously consuming words

Breathing in the scent of
Pages long since penned by
Authors whose bodies rot
And feed the needs of the earth’s fauna
And flora

Eternity swirling and glowing in the
Hopeless depths
Of her eyes.
Dreamer, is she

Bone-raw fingertips pounding
At keys too real to express
The desperation of her mind.

Um… I didn’t know what to talk about today, so I wrote you a poem inspired by these star-and-moon print tights, which you have to admit are pretty awesome. I feel like a chameleon and/or a rockstar today, because this entire outfit is not my usual vintage or retro, and… lots of black.

Happy Monday!

(P.S. If you happen to get these tights, size up. These SAY they fit 5’5-5’11 and 140-190lbs, but… if these were meant to be waist-high, they only came to barely over my rear-end. With lots of stretching and struggling.)

  • You certainly have a way with words! And outfits! I’ve totally deviated from my usual vintage get-ups in the name of wearing goth. It’s like getting to put on someone elses identity for the day!

  • Beautiful post. Love the cardigan and tights and even if they’re black, still lovely pops of yellow and white break it up.

    You wrote that! Wow! The whole time I was reading the poem I was thinking “who is this writer because I want more.” Your poem speaks right to my heart. Thank you for sharing.

    Your outfit is so great too! For not being your usual style, it really suits you.

  • I almost bought those tights the other day! Ughhh now I want them. I don’t need any more tights though… Maybe I’ll see them on sale but chances are our Target already got rid of all the tights for the next 6 months. I really like how this outfit turned out though. The mostly black thing looks good on you! I like the cool pattern on your cardigan too.
