Provisional. Precious.

A Poem by YouoweYoupay

Can we stay this way...?




Provisional. Precious.



You tilt your head waiting for an answer


I press my lips together


Consuming the laughter



You look funny when you focus too hard


But you're ruining the melody


Playing in our midnight backyard



You're cracking my quiet


I shelter your hand with mine


As I stare into the sight


Of everlasting myriads of stars...



Your ashen eyes glisten with a blush


My fingers ascend to your lips


No words needed, love. Hush...



Can we breathe instead of think...?


Can we stay this way...?


Drown in a gaze instead of blink...?



You stare, sitting by me still


My fingers on your lips


You've worked on that skill



You can read my lines


And my smile thanks you...


You cross your fingers through mine...



It's only minutes until...


You vanish back into your world...


You respect my wish and I will...


Miss the silent magic we hold...



A Shooting star…should I make a wish, dear..?


Even though I know you drew that star near…?

Imagination is something wonderful...and expressing silence through words is fun.

oh God oh God ^^ this one is amazing in all the scales.
the rhythm is extraordinary
The imagination is splendid
the words are heartfelt
The questions make the song more beautiful and sweet to read
the close is breathtaking.
in three letters, it's W-O-W :)

I really enjoyed this. I like the rhyme, and the images you set. I imagined an alien of some kind that disappeared all of a sudden as I was reading. Totally awsome, magical write. Well done!
