In my search for the universe
I heard the wingbeats of a butterfly
Wandering from the moon to the earth
I saw the stars sprinkle dust of love
Onto lands uncharted
And in those moments
I discovered worlds inside you
San-Pei Lee Jul 2019
I need you
The way Earth needs gravity
To stay in light's orbit

Without you
I lose myself in light years
Afloat in space
San-Pei Lee Jul 2019
The moment you touched my heart
I stopped searching for answers
For you were the center
Of the only universe
I ever desired to know
San-Pei Lee Jul 2019
We hold onto
A library of past memories
Like they're the last breaths of the earth
But darling don't you worry
I write so that our story
Will forever live on in these words
San-Pei Lee Jul 2019
Humans draw borders on land
As if Earth is unchanging
And our lives immortal to witness the stance
We lay claims to insignificant materials fleeting
But the world and so much more could be all yours
And all yours could remain for Earth's time
If we could only learn to fly our lands as birds do the skies
Traverse the currents as fish do waters

Because just what are you attempting to obtain
With these imaginary labels and lines invisible
Cowardly caging yourself in
From supposed evils of the world
Never to be wiped out
If you are harboring the worst of vices within
San-Pei Lee Jul 2019
Can you let my heart be your home
Because the only one I want to take refuge in is yours
Starscapes on summer nights
That we will always find ourselves returning to
San-Pei Lee Jul 2019
Sometimes I wake up
To seconds that float in oblivion
Before it all floods back in waves

Dreams sewed into webs of thread
Sunshine caught in shards of glass
Seashells echoed on ears' shores

But in a sanctuary of stars
Lies the peaceful silence of unborn stars
