I stood in the centre of everything
surrounded by shadows and figures,
the sun rays that usually bathes my skin
this time was blocked with unsatisfied sky scrappers.
I watched the movement of lips, thousands of them,
My brains refused to react to it,
what do I do when I can’t blend in?
nothing rhymes, from the thoughts in my head to the scenario around me.
While the rest of the “figures and shadows” catching up on light speed
I was slowing down, I felt lost you see
Was it me or was it real?
It was then his figure that seems so clear.
My steps felt heavier, he was right there but yet I can’t bring myself near.
My heart whispered, ” look the sun rays are back now go Touch that shimmering skin just for once”
I closed my eyes and stretched my arms
To held someone as precious looking as a diamond charm.
How can I explain the brilliant sunbeams that were shattering on his skin into a thousand rainbow shards.
Now, he seems to be further, the harder I try to catch up.
Like a mirage or dust.
In a fraction of time, or was it a blink of an eye?
He was nowhere to be seen
With him i wish, to escape reality.
Will we ever cross path again?
With sense of emptiness I turned away.
The least I had was his glance, only at me in a crowded place.
I keep this moment close to me
I will never forget about it, for eternity.
I planted a tiny wish in my heart
to meet him
just for once
to thank him for this memory.
