Thank you

Nicolette Wu

thank you for the words that

make me warm inside and out

thank you for the words that

make me like you without a doubt

 

thank you for the letter with the

spelling mistakes and all

thank you for the letter that made

my gift feel so small

 

thank you for tousling my hair

every single day

thank you for the awkward conversations at school that just

make me want to stay

 

thank you for being you and just

making me smile

thank you for being you and

making school worthwhile

 

Spring of Dreams

Cynthia Putri Iskandar

unfettered lies

liaisons of beings

fear of the truth

my crystal tears

 

maiden in white

tufts of dandelions

no fury, no agony

close your eyes

 

symphony of purity

kaleidoscope of peace

breeze embalming the body

sweet, sweet dreams

 

when I die

play this song

and think of me

as I dance at the spring of dreams
