little slivers of brilliance
I must scurry to collect.

Frantically
before they expire
not resting until
every single one
is safe and sound.

Placing the slivers
in an intimate hollow
and taking them out
only in the dark
when I am alone.

My guilty little pleasures
clutched tightly in my fist
tenderly pressing them
to my ears.

That last verse rocked! Good thinking and expression! You still have the gift too.

Achingly beautiful and simple use of language.

Your words 'drop' as honeycomb to the soul filled by your savory words. It's true... many words do not fill space as suitably as those 'appropriately' coined. Beautiful...

"My guilty little pleasures clutched tightly in my fist tenderly pressing them to my ears." You've weaved common words into a sensational masterpiece. Starlingpoet, this is purely magical and hauntingly poignant.
