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.

The Red Wolf

It was an odd and weird dream
I’ve never seen a wolf that close
With fiery eyes and direful howl
In the bloody woods I was lost

I tried to find my way out
But there’s only one route to go
Where you could hear the wolf’s footfall,
Seeing dancing shrubs in a row

I mooned at the bloody woods
And reveled in the quiet
I had seen no one but myself,
Needing a company as yet

It was a recurring dream
That drowned me like a deep gulf
Staring at my reflection,
I knew it’s me who killed the wolf.
