Reflection


I’m afraid
We are not in Narnia
Or in Neverland.
Our world is so real

That I couldn’t even
Have the courage
To tell you
How I love your eyes

When they’re staring
At the moon.
Or how I love your smile
When I could hear

The silent song of it.
I’d seen butterflies
Swaggering around you
On a moon-shadowed

Meadow. I’d seen
the nosy stars peering at you
Whenever you touch
the loveliest butterfly

On unhurried midnight.
I’d seen my wings
Bloom from my shoulder blades
In front of the mirror.

And in that reflection
I’d seen you slouching
On the loveseat, watching me
Loving my insecurities.

You smiled.
I traced your reflection
In the mirror, it’s all I’ve got
In this real world.

Star

Gleaming in the deep of the night
You’re the shiniest of them all,
Besieged by emulous stars.
I’ll be the saddest if you fall.
 
Your stunning world is unreachable
Like the fathomless ocean dividing us.
In England or in Narnia, I am unseen
Till the dawn turns me into dust.
