That Star-Stricken Dream

Thu, 02/06/2020 - 15:04 -- stairs

Taking hold of a sunrise

Slipping through my fingertips

Warmth is what I desire

Deep longing for a smile

Oh what I crave

Candy sweetness unlike any other

Belly-laughing, doubled over

Or even the softest smile

Simple contentment

No smiles, but no worries or uncertainty

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Teacher I want to be happy

 

I’ll run, labored breathing

To keep that feeling close to me

I wish to be happy if for now

Because time isnt real to me

What matters is my living

I can worry about my future when it comes

 

I see that light calling

It’s hot burn inspiring me

I’ll do whatever I could for you

 

This poem is about: 
Me
