When butterflies no longer take their flight,
The vibrant hues turn dim, day turns to night,
In the fairytale we thought would never
True love awakens as the mundane descends.

That's where the real journey will commence,
Hold your beloved, let your souls' recompense.
When your heart beats calm, steady, and true,
That's when love's authenticity shines through.

Do not fear, embrace this honest reveal,
Facing the truth, emotions raw and real.
Only then, deserving of the love we earn,
To a deeper, lasting fairy tale we return.

Wandering through a field of flowers,
Petals sway with each gentle breeze,
Only to stumble and embrace the rich soil,
A purple rose to my face, respectfully bowing to it.

Its vibrant purple hue set it apart from the rest,
I was entranced by the way it stood out,
So I knelt down and offered it to dance,
Carefully plucking it from the ground.

The purple rose swayed like a graceful dancer,
As if it were the one controlling the wind's rhythm,
I met an extraordinary partner in this floral waltz,
I lift it above my head, and it twinkled with delight.

What if I let the wind carry you to the sky?
I released the rose, and it vanished from sight,
As darkness enveloped the deep blue sky above,
Only to reveal the moon, with a twinkling star beside it.

Front row seats to admire its beauty,
A hidden gem, beneath all this earthly rubble,
Who knew you'd ascend so high,
Flamboyant and shining ever so bright.

The soil is not where you truly belong,
For it has hindered your growth for so
To stand out, high above, with that radiant glow,
Is what you've always deserved to know.
I never stopped writing.

Almost out of fuel
Light-years far from home
I already circled the moon
Even got closer to the burning sun

Maybe its time to accept the fact
That the star I once held dear
Is lost in the vast galaxy
Who knew that outer space could get lonely

Stuck with my messed up navigation
As its light always guided me
Without fail towards my location
Now its only pitch black that I see

Where do I go? What's Next?
Questions piling up, the cold creeping
What awaits me in the unknown?
Equipped with the fear of going alone

As you pick up the paintbrush
The music starts to play
Deafening the mundane cacophony
Enveloped in your made up world
A portal seen through your canvas

With each stroke of the brush
Colors starts to fly, fireworks in your mind
You sway to your own creativity
Couldn’t tell the difference,
Between you and a ballerina

The look on your face, filled with passion
Butterflies appeared out of nowhere
Carrying your emotions,
Flying in different directions
Filling the space within with life and glee

As you let go of the easel,
Ready to unveil your work of art
Smiling right at me, rays passing through
At that moment, I realized I wasn’t dreaming
There is indeed two masterpieces that I percieve

Keep working hard

To reach your dreams

I’ll always be here

Holding your hand
Reimers Apr 2021
Cigarette smoke fills the air
Reddened eyes from all the crying
In bed complaining why life ain’t fair
A sip of beer while I’m slowly dying

Hold on they said, I scoffed
How original, can’t I be left alone to rot
The last piece of my happiness took off
In its departure a lot of pain was brought

I took another chug, but met with an empty bottle
There goes my last lifeline
Here comes the memories on full throttle
I hugged my pillow, ready to resign.

I began my journey,
Walking down on this lonesome road
Wandering for miles and miles
Til a car passed by and offered a ride

She greeted me with a welcoming smile
We talked a lot and exchanged stories
We had a lot in common,
And It made the journey more exciting

It was all smooth sailing
Had we not been unaware,
That the ride was going too fast
We had to make an abrupt stop

I'd hope that I could reach the end of my journey with her
But I guess from this point on
I’m walking alone,
but this time with a smile
