Butterfly

DP210192

Love is like a butterfly; so brave, so

Fragile sometimes.

It landed on your shoulder,

But you’re not very fond of bugs.

You said no,

And scared it away. I saw

Your blue veins and pale

White skin.

I think I will never kiss

Your beautiful hands

Yes, I’m nostalgic today. Reposting this again after an entire year.

Disaster In Bloom

I was searching for a meaning,

Courage and a gun

When I found you 

In the middle of a disaster in bloom,

And every inexplicable detail suddenly made sense

.

Rain of petals and unfinished poems:

You were light in the late hours of my nights,

But eyes that reflect my face

Will never reflect the twilight ahead of us

.

Yes, I’ve been writing a lot today.

Endless

Our love was endless while it lasted

I’m always reposting and retranslating this… I need to do the whole thing. I know this line isn’t enough, but it’s the most meaningful.

Prelude

My mind tells me strangers think I look lonely,

But I blame today’s sky

For the sadness around me

.

Passersby and bystanders

Will never know that on a regular Monday,

Wandering around without an umbrella,

I stumbled upon the beginning of my life

.

Unruly heart,

Won’t you ever tell me

Where I should head to?

Maybe someday heavy clouds will fall down

To collide into us

And where I’m meant to be

Just doesn’t matter

.

Yesterday is gone —

All alone. Life has just begun

And the past doesn’t matter

.

I took some nice sky pictures today. Will post them all, eventually.

Longing

In the beginning, our lives collided

Swiftly and unpredictably,

Just like how tragedies are made

.

After the end of our universe,

What is left to desire?

A glance of your eyes

And hands that could never be held —

I’m fragile, I’ve always been

So easy to hurt

.

Left under the manmade stars of a sky I secretly fear,

The vastness of my future terrifies me.

If this is sadness, I do not know.

I’m only longing for what I never had

Yesterday’s Sky

Uncovering and discovering

All the things I’ve known all along

And thought I didn’t know at all…

On the road, moving forward

With my life and everything in between;

I’m still no one wondering if someday

You will know my name
