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.

You Don't Know

You don't know
That I go to bed with crystal tears in my eyes
They glisten in the feeble light of the moon
I am crying silently in fear
Fear of torment and death
Fear of those that I hold dear.
You don't know
That I wring my hands under the table from nervousness
Folding my fingers and squeezing hard
Butterflies smashing into the walls of my stomach
You don't know because I smile at you and
Pretend I am not scared stiff
You don't know
That I have fantasies
Floating into the clouds of purple and gold
Singing and writing poetry
In my mind. Loving.
You don't know so much about me. Yet you do
I know you can see
When you look into my eyes, you can see my happiness and pain.
My joys and sorrows.
You don't know, yet you do.
