Small Town, Big Eyes
The world turns a dusty shade of indigo.
Peach lipstick smiles and damp car windows pull us miles closer.
"The sky was painted just for us,"
I want to tell him.
But truth be told, I don't even know the artist's name.
Maybe the inky landscape has always been here; viewed countess times by many such as ourselves.
The infinite dreamers who feel entitled to its beauty.
But I know the truth,
and I have a feeling he does too.
The world is not mine and mine alone.
It belongs to you and I and everyone between.
So as we gaze into the galaxy around us,
It somewhat comforts me to know that we are not alone.
cold nights can cause the warmest feelings
to view and add comments on poems
