All we are is a blip,
A tear in the fabric of space,
A speck of dust floating
In the current of time.
So what's the point?
Why am I here?
Why do I bother?
Because that person is here.
Because that person is worth it.
The one for whom I would gladly give my life.
The one who I strive each day to make smile.
That smile that could set the sky ablaze,
Force the sun to hang its head in shame
At that person's brilliance.
They are the sun to my moon
Gracing me benignly with radiance.
The one who I would chose over the world,
Because without them,
I have no world.
Nothing else matters anymore,
Not life, not school, not other people.
They are my everything,
And someday, I hope I can be theirs.
That person's voice is like starlight
Unfettered, pure and ethereal.
If I could have it speak only for me.
That person is hopelessly lost,
And yet the still finds hope
In the roses they stop to smell
On their way.
I crave the days my person shares that with me,
The days they find me in the gardens,
And take my home to their heart.
And they are why I bother.
If you have any opinion on this poem at all, could you comment? I desperately want this one to be as good as possible
Love it! You've got some great description within there
I like your theme here (definitely a favorite!), and I was wondering, why do you refer to your love as "that person"? It's unusual and stood out to me.
Uh, good question ^_^' Actually, that person has no idea I like them and I'm not ready to tell them, so I was trying to express my feelings without giving enough for anyone to guess who it is.
I love it! You make me feel emotions with this poem even though I've never met anyone that makes me feel like this. Great job : D
When I first wrote it I didn't think I put in enough emotion to show my feelings for this person, so your comments make me feel a lot better. Thanks
