Comets

Can you forgive me?” I ask, looking at the clear night sky. The stars twinkle silently, making it such a beautiful sight. I get no answer but silence.
Only one person in the world I could never fight with. I’d say something wrong, we’d go silent for a while, and then start talking to each other again like we’d never fought. Yet today felt different. Like I’d said something in frustration that I usually wouldn’t have…
Many times this had happened before, but I knew she was just pulling my leg. She’d be fast and I’d be slow, but we’d always managed that quite well. Tonight, I don’t know why I forgot it was her. I wish I could go back an hour and change it, but that’s not happening.
Each moment seems to be passing slowly right now. It’s something I’ve should have got used to by now. But it isn’t like any other fight. I want this to end soon.
The stars seem compassionate to my melancholy tonight. They seem to silently give me hope that all shall be well soon, that it’s her. As I look up, I see a shooting star.
Star, I’ve never believed in your power. But tonight, with all my heart, I wish just for this… Someone I care for very much is angry at me. I’m doing my best to make everything right. I just wish for her anger to vanish and for us to become friends again. I love my sister, please make all things right between us again”

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. I was kinda putting myself on the shoes of that someone very special to you, huh!OMG! There's a twist! Nope, I just can relate to it…coz my best friend, i am afraid to go online na and chat with him coz of some unintentional assumptions i didn't mean to…

  3. The wrong words can be like a shooting comets, once spoken, they can never return back to where they begin — you can't undo them. I got a little confused at the beginning, when you said "why I forgot it was her" … ? I felt something was missing and I still didn't get what it was except that it made her very angry.You are doing well with your writing Leo, just keep it up. Practice make better.

  4. @Amias:my sister usually irritates a lot, and i know it well so i dont get so overheated usually. this time i forgot it was her. thats what i meant!thank u. will practice! 🙂
