“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over.
Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.” ― Kurt Vonnegut

Definition of thyself!

I’m a fragrance
buried in bloom
longing for release

My soul is wailing
unclothed before thee
yearning for cleanse

I’m an onion
to be peeled
layer by layer

My fruits are ripe
taste thyself
beckoning its thirst

I’m an old soul
walking the Earth
for all eternity

My spirit is seeking
exploration of character
conquering thy labyrinth

I’m of complexity
fancy consumption
hungry for understanding

My desires are extreme
craving love and patience
a worthwhile journey

I’m the curious child
and feisty cat
hanging on a hot tin roof

My eyes burn of fire
with reckless abandon
for whisperings of love

I’m a woman of passion
longing an equation
of mind, heart, body and soul!

A flower for Kat

Life is all about the path you choose
remember it’s a rollercoaster
filled with ups and downs,
even though the scenery changes
the people along the way
make the journey memorable

Like the seasons we all change
remember to live with passion
never never never regret…
dance when no one else does
remember to write
memories should never be forgotten

Enjoy every kiss
you never know whether it will be the last

Make the most of every moment
with family, friends or lovers
whether near or far away

Sometimes you’ll be alone
other times you won’t
but never let life get you down:

bit by bit it falls apart
but with time it blossoms again and again,
Kat was our beautiful flower
she will forever bloom in our hearts, minds and souls.

Written for Redbubble Project: "A Flower For Kat" who passed away at 23 years old. Kathleen Collins was a beautiful soul, friend, artist, writer and poet.
