just because the star-
fish can grow its arms back does
not mean it didn't hurt.

even though scars heal
and wounds fade it doesn't mean I
will forget the pain.

your gracious thoughts and dreams
shine on you like a pearl necklace
your beautiful smile
makes your pearl white teeth visible

your kindness is glowing like a pearl
contrasting with nowadays
when kindness means weakness and
everything has kindness in it gets wasted

your heart is rare and beautiful
just like a pearl
your heart doesn’t belong the time
just like a pearl

Your friendship
has calmed the storm that ravaged inside.
Your love
has extinguished the fire in my head.
Your laughter
has evaporated the tears in my eyes.
All that remains is calmness

sunrain afternoon
where shall I send my poems?**

to my eyelashes,
for they beat irregularly
unconcealed and unconscious
like my poems

to my fingertips,
where they are released fluidly
they grasp, strained and staining, tapping breaths
like my poems

to my smile,
fleeting and happy weeping fortuitously
a lifetime of a whisper, glimpsed and gone
like my poems

to my brain,
where they are symmetrically born only to die ceremonially
a fireworks duration evaporating into a rich velvet
like my poems

like my poems,
none will survive me,
blemishes, pockmarks, beauty marks, residues,
in a flash bang born, in a flash bang consumed

if my mind
was the universe
thoughts of you
would be the
stars that fill it
beyond measure

when I hug you
you smell like a heartbreak
i can hear the sound of your tears
from your jacket

your jacket fits you like
a tragedy would fit winter
your eyes define sadness like
an alone child on a rainy day

when i see you i hear a melody
strings start to play and
my heart,my heart aches

when i see you,my vision starts to fade
my feelings don’t hide anymore
when i see you,my heart aches
a winter tragedy,this is our lives
