Your eyelashes fall
on tablecloth cheekbones;
fine, white linen,
heavily pressed
to an unsustainable point.

Your tears spill
and stain the cloth,
cheetah spots
of grey, of grey,
spoiling that unattainable dream.
I definitely just saw the words eyelash and tablecloth in a preview for a deviation as I was clearing out my inbox but I'd already hit delete before my brain processed it - if you know who wrote it please lemme know so I can create it for sparking this off.

I'll let you know what I understood from this poem:

Stanza 1

The person... because of the noticeable linen that has been stretched to that extent as it has, is for me... indicating (probably) a person who has died, or is undergoing some sort of therapy. In essence, the person's going to start dying soon... or is eventually passing life somehow.

Stanza 2

Here, its the post trauma of that therapy which that person is somehow... not going good at all... That's what I feel... its as if the person is corroding. In essence, the person is dead inside, and there's no way out...

:shrug: Or, alternatively:

Stanza 1:

Barney the dinosaur decided that he looked like an ape and he decided on becoming bald

Stanza 2:

Barney the dinosaur got his ass handed to him.

this is absolutely lovely. for some reason, it reminds me of the great gatsby, especially the "unattainable dream" part. i love it :heart:

I don't know whether you are referring to a poem submitted to DA or to something from published poets. In case it's the latter here is a website called PoemHunter.com which is good at searching from bits of information.
