She Said to Him

I’d rather have the telescope than the moon and the stars.

Has been saved

To watch the stars, one looks upar
and becomes a fan
with neck

growing
tired

each minute;

One
looks down
and loses connection
but not love.
Never the light.
That has been saved in her eyes.

Haven’t I?

Untitled (2)I was told you were powerful.
That you could change things.
Rules.
And people.
That you were practically
Everything.
I had believed them.
Yet why now
Do I feel such a silly kid
Who lost hopes as she lost her candy?
That was ordinary.
The candy.

 

You are not as powerful as they thought you were
Or if I am mistaken,
Maybe I haven’t really met you yet.

Scrolling down, I saw something.

Surprisingly I felt nothing.
Was it because it was just a photograph?
Or was it because I have drained all that stupidity?
I wish it was because I am now invincible to your trickery.
Still
I wonder how it would feel like
when I get to see you again
and speak to you again
touch you again.
Could I be on my feet?
Be not like the saint you once portrayed.
Be not the musician you once depicted.
Be not the teacher you once hid into.
For I am now the artist that is not fooled by any fake magician.
I am the writer that writes about deceptions–
Yours–
And now I have my charcoal and my paint, my paste and my thread,
my strings and my needles
To put things back together,
Except you and me.
