Poetry Come Alive

by WritingtheStars   Jul 17, 2017


Poetry can be anything you want,
anything in the world-
the oranges of a sunset,
a car ride with a close friend,
bees buzzing in a garden,
the pulsing chaos of a party,
the peacefulness of a sleeping child,
the ink-stained fingertips of a writer,
books stacked on a student's desk,
the stillness of cold eyes,
a bleeding heart after a breakup,

your sparkling eyes that draw me in,
the way you look at me
like I'm the only person in the world,
your warm embrace I could live in,
how contagious your laugh is,
the strength you possess
in dealing with your issues,
your extensive imagination,
and beautiful mind.

Anything can be poetry
depending on your perspective,
but you-
you are pure poetry
every way I look at you.
