my hands aches to write,
but my heart says, "just cry it all out."
i was an ocean of emotions;
deep, wild, and uncontainable.
i used to think that i was cursed
to live in a small vessel
with such humongous core.
and i was.
who am i to wish for the moon
when i'm just a part of the crowd?
and you say aim high?
those perfect eyelids fluttered shut
lips inching towards the flame
i never wanted to be fire before
but now i wish i was ablaze
i watched you make your silent wish
and saw it melt away
the embers swirled with energy
your eyes made them ashamed
and as the black smoke settled
i knew your wish would come true
but surely, dear, you’d wished for him
i’d wished for you
where'd they go?
your eyes have been as blue as the ocean,
with thoughts that could break the walls down.
with your feet wandering backwards,
your hands reached the ghosts
which you got rid of once.
your tongue coldly murmured the curse
with no exceptions for those you held close.
wanting the sun and the moon to transpose
with mind wishing for creatures of doubt.
i'm sorry but i'm building this wall around me,
so, the monsters can't get you, too.
you'll be safe.
