by stupendous man

“Show me the heart unfettered by foolish dreams and I’ll show you a happy man.
But only in their dreams can men be truly free.
‘Twas always thus, and always thus will be”


The perfect poem recited itself in my ears
As the perfect setting of silence accentuated the hues so mellifluously spread
For the perfect woman to walk this earth
Every spoken word that followed lost its meaning in me,
Sounding to me just like any other strum of an instrument
When the struggle is evident,
As life itself scatters around you to find the most meaningful gestures
To praise your beauty, your existence,
The sense of purpose you weave into this world
I sit here amused, watching the sun set with its brilliance dimming in shame,
Its light exhausted in its efforts to outshine you
And with its fading light my will withers
To justify every breath I spend not in your embrace
But in the company of loneliness
As the skies light up from a scarred orb in the night,
Glowing in reservation fearing the very grace
That sent the whimpering sun to the other side
Little does the world know that the moon draws it’s light from your celestial smile
As the sun was no where to be found
Heavy breaths of sighs escape me as the sleep eludes tonight,
Every countenance I gaze upon bear a striking resemblance to yours
It’s only nigh till I lose my insanity
To this obsession of not being simple when I’m thinking about you
But when these words find you
I hope they sing with a more poetic tune than I could ever do.
