Like a rose that blooms,
Despite its thorns and imperfections,
You stood out among the rest,
An elegance that is admired by not just many, but me.

You've been through it all,
The tragedy, the lessons,
The ascend, the downfall,
And most importantly, you smiled.

A positive outlook,
Though thwarted by many
Judged, shredded
Bluffed and maltreated.

Now look at you,
Now an epitome of optimism,
A symbol of hope and happiness
Yes you, are in awe of elegance.

An anomaly it seems
A perfect match?
On a wrong time?
Those suspicious eyes
It told me something
Was it love?
Was it pain?
Or was I frail?

Drenched myself
With your fragile kiss
And my weary eyes
I also believed
You would be my eternity
My happy pill
My everything
Until it came.

Hours have passed
The clock
It reached its peak
I gave up
I sought after the stars
Thinking you will be there
By the time
The clock ticks twelve.

But no, you were already there
Watching across
The vast horizon
Of a shallow sky
Filled up
With the thought of coming back
Yes, yes you did
As you watch over me, oh right.

Perhaps a galaxy, it really

Follow me for more! @chasingeuphoria ,hope you like it, more coming soon!

I don't deserve you nor you deserve me.
It just so happens that we were aligning
Over the same horizon
And neither of us were destined to meet.

Converged on opposite ends
Granted it could mean something
Perhaps even a slight chance
Between both of us

But I rather realized
What makes you happy
Makes me glad as well
I guess that's love, right?

Seeing you from afar,
Admiring your smile
Seeing it firsthand
I was convinced...

You were rather happy, without me....

They called your name
I paused and listened
To the whispering thought
Of reminiscing, you.

And then I saw you
For the nth time
Still glowing as ever
Felt like it was the first time

Seeing you, all over again
Brings back such memories
That I truly, truly cherish.
Feelings were mutual, then.

But what are the odds?
Of us getting back together
Us, continuing
What we've already started

A story-filled hapless hearts
Blistered with a yearning question
Ended with a blurry answer
A love story that never was.

I tend to wander off
Whether it was all for a reason
Destiny? Purpose? Odds?
Seems like a deepened sadness

Will be rewritten in those stars
It's tough to hide the pain
The way we lost each other
The way it fell apart.

Yet the next thing I knew
You were happy, with him
A seemingly dwindled chance
Of us, flipping the narrative.

But hey, what are the odds?
I'm happy that you are happy
Not the ending that I expected
But the beginning that I dreamed of, for you.

A question of what if? and a matter of what could have been.

A flicker of hope, optimism and desire
Happiness, all but she conspire
Wide teary eyes, filled up her night sky
Perhaps it deserves another try?

It felt like infinity
Words that have validity
She held them tight
Nothing came out right

Thus, her eyes were as clear as blue
Affection, yes, it never came true.

One of those short but sweet works of mine, hope you enjoy it! More coming up! @chasingeuphoria

I wasn't angry,

I was mainly afraid.

I figured we'd come to my dark moment because wasn't that the way stories went?

It was kind of tragic, that's why Romeo and Juliet isn't a romance

Even though it's all about love and obsession and family rivalries but a tragedy.

"Maybe because we're both destined to meet but never reciprocate at once."

"If you stay,
stay forever.

If you go,
do it today.

If you change,
change for the better.

And if you talk,
make sure you mean
what you say."

More coming soon! @chasingeuphoria
