Random Poem:


Stare at the Moon
Bright, beautiful, perfect, unattainable
Surrounded by Stars
Shining, graceful, together, vaingloriful
Day and night I'd shoot for you
Every day I'd miss, I wouldn't land amongst the stars
They laughed, mocked me for trying
If the skys the limit why can't I go higher, to you
Years pass, soon you realize I was trying to reach you
I'd been aiming for something that hadn't even known me
I didn't even know you
Blinded by beauty, only to be alone once more
