There once was a boy, & a girl
Who were more than average in this big, strange world
With a determination by any means
To shoot for the stars
& live for their dreams



The girl, a writer, is what she dreamed
The boy, a hero, by any means

However the boy, the girl did know
Had a special shine whenever he'd show
Her heart would fill with a jealous rage
Whenever the boy would stride on stage



& all the stars within the sky
Could not match any of the stars in his eyes

Even in darkness, or amongst crowds, she would know
How to find the boy, by his precious aura's glow

& the girl would wonder to herself constantly, "Why?"
Why she had not the same sparkle in her eyes



Soon her determination for dreams turned to hate
With anger & violence in her wake
Whilst the boy would linger himself on
Wondering what exactly he had done wrong

For he had always from the start
Had followed the compass of his heart


Never to the girl did it occur
That the boy had longed only to impress her



So once upon a snowy night
Where not a single white cloud was in sight
Both boy & girl on a cliff did sigh
At the glamourous cosmic canopy painted up high


In the midst of the moment, in the midst of it all
The girl's anger had lifted, & a smile did form


Actions quickly happened, completely unplanned
Exchanging soft kisses, & taking one other's hand



Away from the troubles of this world
Together, suddenly diving into the deep blue sky



They, giving their final leap, their all
Showed each other how to fly.
This poem was inspired by {& dedicated to} because of his beautiful short story he wrote for me & sent to me for my birthday. Thankyou so much. :hug: :heart:


This poem I suppose is about humanity & the many emotions we go through, dreaming, love, hate, jealousy --- all the parts we must feel in life in order to live, in order to survive. :rose:

Our world is a crazy world. If we simply worked together...we can achieve miracles {& life would not be so bad}.



This is simply a poem portraying just that. Whatever happens exactly after at the end? I will leave that for you to interpret. :blowkiss:

{Please don't mind the "&'s" I used, I prefer using them over the "and's", because I personally believe it looks nicer. At least it does for me. ^^;}


I am not confident in my writing these days. I have not been writing for myself in a while.



Hopefully I have not lost my touch...



EDIT: This poem reminds me of the song {one of my favourites}, "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane. :heart:

oooooooo :shivers: this gave me goosebumps....

it's wonderfully written- and so ....what's the word i'm looking for

sad? :shakes head: no...
dreary...that's a little better....but no

somber- there ya go. somber. i think it's very somber....the ending. omg! the imagery~ it's beautiful (them flying) but sad- they did commit suicide right? O.o

i like the part where she wonders how come she's not as ...shiny as him- reminds me of my art. i always see great artists and wonder what i am doing wrong...:sigh:

I think in the beginning both the girl & the boy had dreams, goals.


Perhaps they both had the same dreams, similar goals?

The girl ended up becoming jealous of the boy, & her aims ended up turning into hatred upon him. She then forgot about her dreams, & so did he as he worried that he had hurt this girl, who must have obviously been close to her.


But ironically, he was doing these things because he wanted to impress her because he loved her.


In the end, they just let go. I do not believe they die. At least, I'd hope not.
