illusive heroes

 

.○•º☆º•○.

 

I was looking up

at the stars tonight,

just looking...

mostly thinking what a wonderful time

it is on the earth

to be alive,

to have moments such as that moment was.

 

 

i saw a planet,

and there was a woman

looking back at me,

 

 

when i looked closely,

I noticed she was smiling,

and there was a great sense

of joy in her eyes.

 

.

●○•º☆º•○●

 

I used to feel like people always wanted 

a piece of me,

and I resented the feelings

that resulted from my own

ignorance.

 

 

meeting her has made me 

see,

that it was just her all along.

 

 

we don't compete anymore,

we've been friends for awhile.

 

 

it was great to finally see

her face.

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "

Love it! "I was looking up

at the stars tonight,

just looking..."

Amazing the things you can see when you stop, open yourself, and just let the heavens speak to you. I really love this poem! I felt lighter just reading it ;-)

Love warmth gratitude thanksgiving

Changing sweaty words to fragrant blooming

Electric fans for eight months tirelessly whirring

There's a nip in "Novembair" His wand is waving!

Nice lines. I imagined a

Nice lines.

I imagined a woman peering at Venus

And some acceptance of understandings between each other.

A whole slew of various heindsights come into focus with a smile.

Acceptance.

Understanding.

Nice things to feel, reguardless of the true nature of this creation.

nightlight what this reminds me of is perception, assumption, and complexty. who's to say that the smiling face at you isn't your reflection? who's to say you were being your own enemy, and when you got a glimpse of the mood, in tune with your emotions, your thoughts began to organize, and your guard was dropped you realize your self worth and you're ready to let go of the past to begin anew. next, interpretation i could take this is someone you thought didn't like you between the sound of their voice, word choice, the look in their eyes, and body language made you feel like she couldn't stand you, but in reality she really just wanted to be part of your life, get to know you, and maybe be your friend. all you need to do is open those lines of communication. lastly, who's to say with life's complexities it isn't a little bit of all the above or more. this is why i enjoy reading poetry; not only just writing it. i love how you can venture so many outlits from one poem and show the depths of a poet. well done.
