Untitled by Alishya Almeida

will find me in disasters.
In the veins of your
sadness, the empty sky
blue, the memories
of black dresses and
the feeling of doom unfolding.
We could wash out this morning,
stay in bed, the world
will do without us.
I could be science,
the furniture of my thoughts
perhaps become a planet,
disguising my instability
by reflecting the light
you shed.

This is incredibly beautiful imagery and depth of thought.

I would like to have a few of the stones her work has appeared in. I love words on stones. She's a fine little poet.
