Don't Tell Anyone

27.7.15

via 
Don't tell anyone,
but I sold my soul to the wildflowers. 
I let their shades of indigo and
purple hues
devour what was left of me. 
I let myself roll down 
the dark green hills and let the grass' 
uneven edges prick my fingertips 
as they brushed through. 
Don't tell anyone, 
but I sold my soul to the golden beams
of sunlight fighting to shine through the 
small holes in the treetops. 
I let the humid air swirl around me
as the faint breeze touched my cheeks.
Don't tell anyone,
but I sold my soul to the fluffy white clouds
that looked as if they had been
painted onto the baby blue sky. 
I let the richness of the dark earth swallow me
and let the scrap-booked leaves 
crunch beneath me.
Don't tell anyone, 
but I sold my soul to mistiest of things,
to the dreamiest of things, 
to the brightest of things, 
to the greatest of things.
Don't tell anyone, 
but I sold my soul to the 
wildflowers.
