Mother
Life May 2021
mom, your uplifting smile
and your super spirit

your forgetful mind
but your optimistic energy

that bounces
entirely off you

my hand
inside of yours

so, so proud
would never want to leave

comfort
that's always there

arms
wrapped around me

held in hugs
you're patient

and caring
beautiful

held my face
as you told me the same

my eyes water
at the prospect of me saying goodbye

because I know
there will never, ever be

a mother
that's as caring, and loving as you

capture
Life May 2021
canvas white
only the eyes
that stare
at supernovas
that surround

listen
reflecting moon
galaxy dark
but full of lights
that hang in skies

tall trees
block the view
when clouds
cover the night
even on clear days

village ahead
with it's burning fire
quiet and dark
just for this
that they hoped I capture

distance
Life May 2021
eyes burn
from sights of him

talents, seeable from afar
my hand in his firm

unchangeable distances
separate, goodbye

song
Life May 2021
my song
vibrates
through the air

intentions
through melodies
that don't exist

our song
flows next to us
this tension

lost in mine
stressing about ours
song

grass
Life May 2021
we roll through green
staring at each other
my spark, my flame
something I cannot explain

her voice, melody
mingling with mine
as we talk in a mixed daze
only each other

our tongues tied
this field
what it does to us
our eyes never apart

a moon
first time we meet
this feeling really
is incomplete
I didn't mean to make some parts rhyme...

Life
Life May 2021
my life as Life
cries to the left
the echoing halls
kind, fun, parents
yet strict
exercise every morning
sister, brother
confusing identities
can't stay up
friends I forget
all day computer
write my stuff
read, dance, sing
calling for attention, my weirdness
my life as Life
Yeah,  not really a poem...

left, right
Life May 2021
left, is it wrong
if right, is right?
left, is it to erase
if right, is to write?
left, is it the opposite way
if right, is the right way?
left, is it odd
if right, is more popular?
left, be left
if right, hadn't taken right?

sideways drift
Life May 2021
lost in a river
water against me
twists and turns
pushing against water
hear gushing
flows and falls
ride along
with unstoppable motion
now turned around
see a drop
splash, terror
life too early washed
see a turn
lead me astray
as I fall
into a sideways drift

falling roses
Life May 2021
my roses
hold up to my heart
breathe the sweetness
of my roses
mine, only mine
lost in worlds of trah
my roses keep me company
then my roses fall
my hope faded
my falling roses

— The End —
