Poems poetry

One thousand

In one thousand eyes
I could search for you
the purple sky
right at that time
when you can’t
take your eyes off
the colours
even photos
cannot capture
the life
of one thousand souls
to reach you
I could take the dark
keep it close
lose myself in its arms
but your thousand songs
comfort me more
I was born one thousand times
and all the while
it was you
I met again
to only meet again
under the thousand stars
that divide
us and connect us
Bold or bittersweet
it has brightened
my universe
into one thousand poems
for you.
