Belong With The Stars

I took out the stars for you

Pulled them close so you could hold on to them,

See their beauty up close.

Let the light shine upon that rugged face

Feel the warmth of their light and let it be your guide.

You belong with the stars, love

So don’t forget to shine.

We Crossed

I am nowhere and so are you

My thoughts are everywhere but not on you

We crossed paths but never looked or saw each other

A glance

But not truly seeing

You ponder but not about me

Our sights crossed

And then we looked away at the possibility

Of us

See Myself Thin

It’s not funny

I’m self conscious…all the time

I look at the mirror

Try to cheer myself up

Gain the confidence

But it gets depleted with each people who look at me funny.

The skinny can easily find clothes that fit

The heavy….well, we often struggle

My self esteem has left years ago

So I curl up on my bed

And hide in my room

Do You See?

It took me by surprise

And then I realized

The moon has always been so beautiful

Though the eyes of a lover might think it more wonderful

The sky is bluer

The grass greener

But it’s always been so.

It’s a matter of choosing what to see

Fine Too

I saw him

Way over there

Making his way

Walking towards me

I was half expecting he would look up

Maybe wave at me,

Or even just smile at me
But he didn’t 

He just kept walking

And then

He stopped and gave me a hug

And that was fine too

Our Conversation 

I looked in his eyes and saw reflections of me

Does he understand? Does he truly see?

What we could be

I and he.
I say I love him, I said it shamelessly 

I feel light, I feel free

His eyes seem to smile happily.
His mouth parted as if he was about to say something

Then I woke up hearing my own heart breaking.
