Just life and things #1

Info

Stunned

I saw a glimpse of you 

and there I was

muscles tensed,

jaw dropped,

eyes wide open,

and perhaps 

a bit teary.


Yup, you're that amazing


Trees

Yes, stand tall

be free amidst all,

let all your roots crawl

and only shed when it's fall.

Strong and powerful that is what you are,

prevail splendidly as we watch your aura.

Youare magnificent just like a blazing star

I will, in all my lifetime, cherish you, my radar.


Moonbow

But you see you're not for the typical

the way you think is original

your words are lyrical

and being around you is magical.


From the way you test your wits

to the way you throw fits

oh I know you don't take no shit,

no wonder why I chose you for my world to orbit.  


It's seldom, the time when you will be around

but i'll lie awake, I'll stay on my ground.

I'll wait with these deafening sound

and hope that our eyes will again bound.


I know this is no pure luck

but soon enough you came back

though I know we'll again part

just like Rose and Jack.


Sadly, the time will come

when it's my turn to be gone,

don't tremble my little one

please do continue to stun.


And as a reminder, a simple message I shall give you

to show the bond that we had two

"Even in darkness

you shine

you glow

just like a moonbow".


Bombard me with your questions

I'm a firm believer that life should be filled with questions,

all the types of questions in that matter. 

Whether with sense or not,

bonkers or boring

fantastic or derelict

carefree or melancholy.


Because answers are our life savers

and answers can only be obtained if questions occur,

therefore, 

go on,

let's live life and,

bombard me with your questions. 


Sinkhole

What does it feel like to be yellow in a world full of red? 

Unique you say? 

It's unique alright.

It's different.

It's lonely.

I guess you don't understand because for you

all there is, is standing out.

But no. 

Life is more than standing out.

In fact, life is about being connected.


But when you're the only yellow

who do you connect with?


See my point?


That's how I feel.

I'm a contrast to everything.


And I am being eaten by cavity. 


The cavity you'll find on the ground

that creates terrifying sinkholes

is the same cavity that eats my soul.


I'm sinking

but no one is helping.


Because it can't be helped. 


Sudden realization

I was unknown of love until this young boy decided to put the stars back into my dark and dead sky. It's scary, the way it feels like home with him. It's even weird the way I never imagined that I'd like him.


People will always say to not look for love and let love find you - in which of course I didn't listen to nor even cared about. 


But I guess it only take so long to know a person but just a fraction of a moment to know what you're in for. 


The well known unrequited love

It's the most felt kind of love 

- the unrequited one -

where in only one party secretly feels.

Some say it's wrong,

it's fallacious,

bizarre,

but I think it's true.

To think that how can an individual be so selfless

in a world full of selfishness. 


What lies beyond

You had me witness the rarest of things,

made me feel the strangest of feels,

made me realize different life means.

Just, who are you? 

What are you? 

And how did you do it? 

Not just to touch a dead soul 

but to revive it. 

I wonder. 


The things you don't care about

I know for a fact that those words

are not for you to digest.

Because I know you don't care.

Therefore, you won't understand,

you never did

Hi, I like many of them, and I was wondering that why have you posted them one after the other. Make each a separate story.

Hello, I compiled several stories based on my experiences when reading poems here in launchora. I felt like one is too short and it kept me wanting to read more but without the need to search for another. But I'll take what you said into account and make separate ones as well. Thank youuuu! :)

Maybe it's better this way. To hide and to hold, for a little time.
