          It's because when all the paper airplanes fly by

                    They softly and carefully steal my heart away.




I lost the moon in the thundering, starlit waves
And the stars scoffed when I looked skyward.

                              (The clouds shook fingers and scolded the stars.)




                                        Whispers drifted down and cackled in my ear,
                                        But I could not understand the murmurings –
                                        And no one will teach me the sweet language.

          The wind tastes of twinflowers and salty sea,
                    And as it gets lighter, I find the horizon's sun.

The paper airplanes flew by again today.
They aren't paper-clean white anymore.
For =Chaotic-Whispers.

I hope you like it. :]

EDIT: I have entered this into a poetry contest (Poetic Power).

This is a very gentle piece. Reading it is like drifting on a slight breeze. So, very nice work. I especially love these lines;
"I lost the moon in the thundering, starlit waves
And the stars scoffed when I looked skyward."

Quite beautiful and there is some amazing subtext running through this. (Intended or not, I am leaning towards intended though :P) The piece flows well and the cyclical nature rounds the piece out wonderfully. Well written and excellent work.
