Beautiful Torture

I looked up the sky and saw the star
Enchanted, mesmerized by its sparkling glory
Longing to touch it, hold it
Trace the outlines of its beautiful shape with my fingers
Even for just a night… just one night.
It’s torture.

I looked out my window and saw the butterfly
Flapping its beautiful wings round a flower
Kissing, caressing those delicate petals
Oblivious of my yearning to take its wings and make it mine
Even for just a day… just one day.
It’s torture.

I look from afar and I see your beauty
A star that I want to reach and hold
For just a night… just one night
If only the butterfly could lend me its wings
Even for just a day…

just one day…

Like A Star

Your words are beacons of truth
Illuminating the dark path to aid those lost souls
Your defiant stance against the world’s madness
Reminds me of that solitary star
Pushing its way out of the dark, stormy clouds.

I look at that star and wish with all my might
To be able to hold it, touch it, feel it.
I look at you and wish with all my heart
To be able to hold you, touch you, feel you.

But, like a star that held me captive
You are so unreachable
So adorable, so bewitching
And yet, so far from me.
