VELVET. soft and smooth. Others find undescribable.

ASTRAEA. The 'Starry Maiden'. During the Golden Age, the gods dwelled among mankind. As the wickedness of mortals increased, she was the last to leave, returned to heaven and was transformed into the constellation Virgo. She is represented as holding a pair of scales in one hand and a sword in the other.

DIDO. Queen of Carthage, who fled from Tyre, established her own colony. She assisted Aeneas after he had been ship-wreched and fell inlove with him. When he left her to sail on to Italy, she killed herself.

Best Poem of Velvet Astraea Dido

Anonymity

Shift
Slide
Fall
And my head is spinning
Lost my grip
Lost my thoughts

Tripped
Flee
Run
Away as far as my mind
Perceives
As far as my feet
Could take me

Skipped
Leap
Soar
To escape all realities
To an endless sky
To boundless possibilities

Efface
Destroy
Obliterate
The eternal pain
To never stumble
Never deluded
Again.
