when circadias begin to float
upturned on a stagnated river
and you yourself are heart down
with your crest fallen about you
then look for the end in me.

when closing your eyes brings light
and the sun kisses carrion
with your heart clucking openly
about some misdeed, some old seed,
of misfortune from its past - then

then, look for the end in me.
Hey guys, so circadias are apparently not a thing. I researched it and I was thinking of cicadas, however the way this word sounds drove quite a lot of the image in my mind... so I guess I'm going to leave it. The visual I was thinking of was a woman laying face down on some kind of broken raft in the middle of a not moving thick stinking river with dead insects floating dead on the surface. So I guess in the new word column we have circadias, meaning insects.

- It's about life, and 'kissing carrion' is yet another hamlet reference. ~SORRY! Can't help it. Love Shakey <3

It's a bit hard to read. I recommend watching Baz Luhrman's Romeo and Juliet. They are plays after all, meant to be seen. That and Shakespeare in Love (not a shakespeare play, but a fictional film about him)

I really like the word circadias. It's got the same root as circadian, as in that cycle your brain uses to tell time, or something. :)

Cool! I like that idea, I thought that was the name of cicadas until my friend (who lives in a place where they actually have them) told me it wasnt. But I liked circadias because it made me think of the circle of the day, and they come out at a certain time. I'm not sure where this word came from in my brain?

Well, that part was spot on. Circa- is related to around, dias- is related to days, perhaps? It's always fun when your brain combines things and you're not quite sure where that new idea came from. :)

Your Shakespeare references make me laugh cause my English class is literally right in the middle of Hamlet right now.

laughs, me too, but I've always been a keen Shakespeare fan, so I am delighted to be able to be nerdy shakespeare geek in class.
