She.
shi Jun 2020
She is that piece of art
hard to make
a meaning of-
too shallow, too foolish.

She is that piece of art
not aesthetically pleasing
even at closer look-
plain, dull, ugly.

She is that piece of art
nobody would dare
tell about anyone-
a total waste of time.

She is that piece of art
in a blink of an eye
forgotten-
gone with the wind.

She is that piece of art
easily praised by everyone
yet nobody would dare display,
instead, kept hidden at the attic
until it has turned into nothing
but complete dust-
not even in anyone’s memory.
Just an old piece

Winter flower
shi Dec 2019
She was a flower that lives only in winter. A flower that never saw the sun, a flower whose lived through the cold and dark. He, on the other hand, was the opposite- so warm and bright. One day, a strong wind caused their lives to intertwine and for the first time, she felt warmth. Every day, he would bring her the sun to make her forget the cold and dark, that she also forgot how she was a flower that lives only in winter. And so, she let him bring the sun to her- too close- that she died.
Sigh.

what they say about love,

how time slips fast through our lives,
but stops when i'm with you
back at it again with these corny love poems loool

Us
Flowers bloomed that chilly night,
On our way back home,
under the moonlight,
The stories fill the open air,
We were laughing
like no one else is there,
I tried to keep my heart in check,
Beating fast,
it was going wreck,
But I know things won't stay this way,
And I know you're going
to leave someday.
Finally, I was able to make a decent poem. I've been doing haiku for the past years and forgotten how to compose even a short poem like this pfft

That night
shi Jul 2018
City lights flickering,
The stars above, glowing,
The leaves on the trees, swaying, dancing,
As if its favorite song is playing.

That night, they were standing,
Standing still, quietly waiting,
For someone to break the silence,
And speak out the words they've been hiding.

Under the moonlight they faced each other,
Palms sweating, trying not to falter,
Slowly, and gently, he spoke,
"Your eyes are beautiful."
"You are too," she answered.

awkward
shi Mar 2016
i see you when you take a glance on my powdered cheek
i see you when you try to put your eyebrows on fleek
i notice you when you give someone a playful wink
i see your face when someone ignores you when you speak
i noticed how your expression changed to give someone a kick
i see you everytime you're late and you try to sneak
i see everything
i notice the unnoticeable
you feel awkward
i feel awkward too
you're single
i'm single too
This is just random haha

Dance along
shi Dec 2015
He saw her dancing
Along with the sad music
Find himself swaying
along like a freak

He was enchanted
By her eyes' beauty
Like it always wanted
to tell a story

He was not aware
Of what was happening
No one was there
Was it just him, imagining?

He looked again,
Saw not even a shadow
He was saddened,
He started dancing slow

He looked at the mirror
The girl is back, moving in slow motion
He was happy, he danced once more
With the girl in his imagination

One-sided
shi Dec 2015
Some say we cant be
I wasnt sure for myself
But you stayed beside me
Fix everything on my shelf

You always give me that smile
It was deadly, poisonous, hot
And I just die inside every while
But its alright, I mind it, not

But at the end of the day
I know hearts cant lie
You don't feel the same way
I love you,
but it's time I bid goodbye

handkerchief.
shi Jun 2015
never forget your handkerchief.
inside your pocket, there you keep
you may not see the reason why,
but a time will come that you'll cry

a time will come your eyes will rain,
use the handkerchief, wipe the pain
oh pain, oh pain, please go away,
dont you ever come back again

treat your hanky your best bestfriend,
and never let your friendship end
your hanky will always stay with you,
while people leave and un-comfort you

oh, i will always keep you clean
battle against dirt, i can win
oh just for you, my dear hanky
just for us to be happy.
this is very funny
