I got well spaced out
I looked at the universe
And got drunk on stars
Fun one xxxx

The striking sunset
That I always try to chase.

The overwhelming ocean's deepest trench
That I swim so hard to reach.

The countless constellations in the sky
That I strive so hard to figure out.

Are the sunset,
Are the bottom of the ocean,
Are the constellations--
Insurmountable beauty,
Immeasurable vastness,
But quite frankly,

So darling,
Forgive me for trying so hard to reach you,
For forcing something that isn't there.
I think I'll just stay here.
I'll get used to adoring you from afar.
I'll be contented with the fact that I can never reach you in this lifetime.
For there's still some beauty
In cherishing you from a distance.

The room was ineffably dark,
The silence was deafening,
It was safe to say that I was utterly alone..

I walked,
And walked,
Until I could walk no longer.
I was searching
Searching for something that I don't know.

It was still dark
It was still silent
I was still alone.

It made no sense to continue any longer.
So I stopped.
And I waited,
Until waiting made no more sense.

And then He came..
First a glimmer,
And then a beam,
And then the room lit up,
Both suddenly and slowly.

He offered His hand and I took it.
Relief came unannounced.
The darkness,
The chasing,
The waiting,
And ultimately the surrender--
They all made sense.

There is beauty in surrender.

Everyday, the shore gazed at the ocean,
Mesmerized by its perfect melange of vastness and sadness.

Everyday, unknowingly yet willingly,
It embraced the ocean's waves
As they repeatedly crash into
The shore's crushed and powdered self.

Everyday, the shore did this
Perhaps this will diminish the ocean's sadness
But no matter how much waves
Have kissed the shore,
Sadness still enveloped the ocean.

Your subtle beauty was formed in darkness,
Created in her heart's cold atmosphere.

I keep on seeing you everywhere--
Settling on the green grass,
Lying on the sunflower's leaves,
Trickling down the car's windows.

To find beauty in the mundane
Wasn't difficult at all
So I stretched and reached out to you,
But you began to fade
When the first streak of my sunlight hit you.

Would you rather stay in her coolness
Than bask in my warmth?
Perhaps I'll just let you embrace the night for now
And tomorrow I'll rise and try again
Hoping that you'll learn to love
The warmth that my daylight can bring.
