A Stellar Phenomenon

I would like to thank the Universe
For choosing to unite us 
And give me this
One beautiful year
Of the beautiful
Eighteen years of your life
That you have yet lived.
The years I missed,
I spent in search of you.
I am sure of this
For when I look at you
I can feel, remember
Stars colliding-
A sense of deja vu,
A distant memory I cannot quite recall.
I feel complete,
Like this entire life 
My soul has conspired with fate
To make mistakes
And take bad decisions
Which would only
Inch me closer,
Lead me,
To get to you
And now that I have, I can only hope
That we become unitary,
Separate to the unaided ignorant eye
But burning brighter, together, as one.
For it is vain
And it is futile
To let go of something
As beautiful as this, us 
When we have collided against each other
To emit the energy
As great as that of all others combined.
And this exotic anomaly
Is so rare, so pure
That they find it difficult
To comprehend 
This cosmic shock.
Through the force of gravity, my love,
We merge into a larger unit
But quietly so
And while they chase after us,
We will be enveloped
In our own blanket
Of space.


We can make
A list of things 
We need to complete 
But we need to be 
To complete 
This list of things.
It's these future promises
Imprinted on my brain
That incapacitate me more 
Than the memories 
I will be leaving behind

Views From My Balcony

I wake up every morning
To the Sun
Cloaking away the dark
And it lights up my day
His sundry colours
Spread across the sky
Like a rainbow that wasn't,
Completely oblivious
To those besotted by his enigma.
Every time he sets
He would leave me transfixed 
On his blush and blond,
On his bittersweet glow,
Like water colours
Splattered on a cloudy canvas.
I would stand back
In awe of his beauty
Craving to be near,
To steal a touch
Or a quick glance,
Waiting for him to turn
And envelope me in his light
Surround me in his grandeur.
But then every night
He would kiss the Moon goodbye
Before leaving
And darken my world
