The Story of my Blog Title

Quilt of Dragonflies- My blog is named that for a reason.I am lucky enough to own a genuine Quilt of Dragonflies, which I am sure brings me good dreams when I sleep beneath it. It was given to me by a friend of my mother's, who handmade the entire thing. Color meets pattern in this fantastic piece of artwork which sits on my bed. Brilliant shades of purple, blue, and green intersperse with tie dye dragonflies. I will not hesitate to call it my inspiration.

Just a Teenage Girl

I am just
      a teenage girl
dusty sneakers teetering
      on the brink of something special
if you stare into my gentle eyes
      for long enough
you just might fall into
       my soul
I live in an overcrowded
      lonely place
my eyes glisten
      I cry for the woes of the world
for my true love
       that was not lost
yet not quite found
       my brave new heart
beats on my sleeve
        my insecurities live there too
my brown hair
        is made of honey colored dreams
my skin is made of
         star dust
I love all
          yet answer to none
I am just
          a teenage girl
