In the stars

Print this story

You hunt for all the stars
your lover hides amongst them,
but under all your scars,
I can read a poem.
 
Your lover’s in the moon,
you can see his face,
your lover’ll be here soon,
he’ll come from outer space.
 
Your lover is on mars,
on Venus and Neptun,
oh, your lover’s in the stars,
and he is in the moon.
 
Your lover’s in the winds,
brushing through your hair,
you’ll be the one he finds,
he’ll find you anywhere.
 
Your lover’s in the air,
your lover’s in the light,
oh he’ll always be there,
on every day and night.
 
Your lover’s in your heart,
your lover’s in your soul,
and since you broke apart,
you can’t feel like you’re whole.
 
You’re always in the stars,
your mind is far away,
beneath all those scars,
mist turns all to gray.
 
Your head is in the sky,
your heart, your heart’s far off,
“where does your lover lie?”
“In the stars above.”

I love it! It is so beautiful. You have really thought about it and I have a really clear picture in my head.

That poem could have easily been made by an adult I wish I could write like that whenever I write at school my teacher is always telling me to add some more correct spelling but yours is perfect. I wish I could write like that.

It sounds as if you know loneliness and you express it well. Writing is a great gift - sharing one’s feelings across space and time. Best of luck in doing more of it more often.

That was fantastic, a beautiful poem! I can’t believe you’ve got so few comments. There was so much emotion in it as well xxx

Nice poem, where are you from, Minna. Are you from Germany? I'm from Iran.
