Questions

 

When I look into the night sky

I see all the white stars that

Brighten all my nights up.

When I look into the night sky

I wonder how it would feel to be

Put there, are there people living

On the planets?

I wish I could throw myself

Off the edge of space so I

Could feel free for once in my life.

The planets for me mean a

Different world, a confusion for me

That I would never

Understand or would I?

I have so many questions

And confusions that I hope one day

I would get the answers to.

{November 3, 2012}   30 Poems in November: Poem #3

Stars. . .

When I look into the night sky I see shiny stars.

The stars I see when you’re around me with a bright smile.

That smile that shines so brightly when seeing me.

It reminds me of a beautiful star that lights up at night.

Those stars I count on everytime I don’t see you.

They shine so bright when I make a wish every night.

The nights we miss seeing those stars that mark our love.

My love is like a bright shiny star that glows up at night.

Like the glowing stars I look upon at night when I’m headed to bed.

Looking at my ceiling I watch the glowing stars.

The stars that remind me of a beautiful night.

A night full of excitement and passion.

The pleasure of making sweet love under the stars that shine.

My heart feels like a shooting star that flies across the sky.
