She said I was the sunrise to her shrinking violet flower
As it sprung up in the warmth of the approaching dawn.
The stars blanketed us, holding us close together
In the frigid cold that was the winter night,
When the prose from her brain
Took a long walk off of its short pier
And hopped into an ocean of unresolved feelings.
I met her just two days before this,
Back when I thought that she was a purple missing a red
And I was the orange streak that could never
Fit into that equation of colors
Yet, her words, like golden fireflies that lit up the night,
Were all that I needed to think about something else.
I was never that great at math anyway.
My face, crimson as a Virginia cardinal, remained unnoticed
Underneath the blues and grays of the moonlight
And I thought –
Maybe, just maybe, you're the sun:
Peeking out of a cover and gone when it rains
With everything that you've held back throughout the years.
But I looked at you like you were the moon.
Or maybe, just maybe, I'm the sun:
In your face and somewhat bright
And sometimes incredibly annoying
And maybe, just maybe, you're that moon:
You reflect my light, yet remain gorgeous and kind alone.
Was I the sunrise you expected?
Did you spring up against the starkness of my dawn?
Or maybe you lay low, like grass that's been freshly cut
Only to be trodden down by other's carelessness.
Maybe I lay just as low as you.
Maybe we cannot put words to what we feel yet –
It's a kaleidoscope of colors and conflicting emotions
It's as complicated as a constellation lost in a sea of stars and planets
It's a pallet mixed with the leftover paints of last night's drunken art session
But it is us -
And after all, why would I go anywhere else when I could be here with you?
Me: It's been too long. I should write more poetry.
Also Me: *doesn't write poetry or upload any older poetry for 6 months*
Anyway, my gay dramatic ass wrote this a long time ago (like a year ago) about Clementine and Violet from Telltale's The Walking Dead (which... is also what I wrote Starbird about, go check that out if you want). Hope you enjoyed.
