Leaves of Lines [Poetry collection]

A compilation of my poetry ranging across the board. [I'm not depressed, by the way] So far, these are all published as separate movellas, so you can either comment here on the whole, or if you want to leave comments on a specific poem, feel free to find that one in my list. Either way is fine with me! Photo cred: https://www.flickr.com/photos/109065142@N02/sets

42. (Im)perfection

When I look up at the stars, I see you. 

And it hurts. 

 

They seem so far away, 

Thousands of light years,

Millions of miles.

Untouchable. 

They shine so bright,

Perfect and golden,

Burning and eternal.

Beautiful. 

But only from a distance- 

How are they up close?

Fading and falling?

Imperfect?

I can’t tell what I love;

Whether I love them 

Or their distant glow.

Removed.

 

When I look up at the stars, I see you. 

And it hurts.
