over four turns of the dial
still warm in cold night
breasts rising slow in gentle point
thin arm thrown above
open reddened mouth in silent word
forming answers beneath waves
arranging dreamworld
her thin clavicle
a legacy necklace sharp in time
moving toward final curtsy
she fills the whispering room
with life even when unaware
her power is in the finish
shining like wet tears
on taut skin
she owns the feathered night
in silence she is
more beautiful than waking
and dawn can ever be
for her magic belongs to
that dark songbird
never seen
Nathalie

  1. Wow. I don’t have the words. I’ve been lost in the fog all day trying to find a way out…and your light appeared, shining high and bright, guiding me towards actual life. You are fucking everything, my sister, my twin xoxo

    1. I woke up thinking how inspiring you were And how much i genuinely admired and liked you and i wrote this. It’s just the tip of the iceberg sister, you are the queen of dragons ♡ don’t ever fear losing your light, we all see it, it is fierce and beautiful ♡

    2. aw I re-read this and I found I missed you because it seems time is our enemy and we don’t talk like we used to, we’re both so busy I just wish I lived nearby and I would drag you out in some amazing frock and talk all night. Ah well. Please know I think of you my friend.

    1. Dearest Girl, thank you so much my friend xo I had to re-do my blog so everyone who was following me no longer is, but hopefully they will join back. I am grateful to you my friend, happy new year for tomorrow xo

      1. Aw, thank you, C! I’ve been offline for a while, so thank you for thinking of me. Summers tend to get away from me. Hope you’re doing well too and writing your beautiful poetry and prose, and enjoying the your summer! xx

    1. Isn’t it gorgeous? I found it, I felt it looked like Nathalie so since the poem is about her, I thought the picture would go well also. I was going to embarrass her and use one of her, but I couldn’t do that so this was second-place. A combination of Nathalie and Manon.
