A SPLASH OF STARS (a poem)

A splash of stars hangs above
Us, a thousand mysteries
Within one glimpse.

The night is cold, and yet
The warmth within us
Could light a million fires.

The burn is slow, as the
Sky loses its stars and
Gains a billion more.

But a billion means nothing,
Not when only one person
Is more than everything.

The human heart, a quiet
And demanding organ, tells
Me to open my eyes.

Enjoy the view, it says.
You never know when you’ll
Win the chance to see it again.

AN EXPLANATION.

People don’t realize the effect they have on us. Sometimes the smallest things can leave the biggest impacts, and this poem was borne from this concept. Every interaction we have is cosmic.

I will be intentionally cryptic with the official explanation for this poem. Just know that I wrote it very recently. πŸ˜‰

Until next time,

-A very cryptic K.

  2. Thousands of stars above me,
    Trying to reveal a secret.
    Don’t know what…
    There is some relation between me and them..
    As they were at my place once or it was me twinkling above.. .
    Don’t know what they are trying to say..
    But a cool breeze whispers that they are showing me the way..
    The way to walk upon and the way to run
    The way to act upon and the way towards destination..
    Those shining stars are my real mates..
    They show me how to shine when darkness prevails..
    In black hour of night, stars become my inspiration..
    In day full of sunlight, I become their reflection…

    1. Beautiful, so beautiful! And you can’t tell English is not your native language, which is an incredible feat to pull off! I love your opening lines: Thousands of stars above me / Trying to reveal a secret. Magical!
