Poem 1: Dreams

I feel so good and I also feel bad,
As I opened my eyes,
And thought about the dream that made me smile.
I wanted to hold that and never let go,
And repeat that dream again on slow.
I wish I could go back to that fantasy world,
And close my eyes and dream that beautiful dream again.
In the dream,
I was lying on the sand,
And stretched my legs in the ocean,
Under the beautiful moonlight,
I saw stars twinkling and forming my name in the sky,
And I wondered if I could just fly that high.
I wish I could just close my eyes and be on the sand again,
And see my name twinkling in the sky again.
I feel so good and I also feel bad,
As I opened my eyes,
And thought about the beautiful dream that made me smile.

Poem 2: Memories

They say they will stay with you forever,
But leave you alone with just memories.
It hurts when slowly you realise that they faded out of your life,
Leaving you alone with just memories.
There was a time they used to say I love you with meaning,
But now it’s just a line with no emotions or values.
It hurts when you come to realise that they already moved on,
It hurts to know that they parted their ways,
Leaving you alone with just memories.
They used to say they will be with you during the good and the bad,
But who knew they would just run away when it was the time to stay.
They say they will stay with you forever,
But leave you alone with just memories.
Memories of good and bad, Memories of tears and fears,
Memories of you and them,
So don’t think they will stay with you forever
Because TIME CHANGES AND SO DO People .
And as it is said Friendships end but memories last forever……..
Friendships end but memories last forever…….

Poem 3: Staring at the Sky

As I stare at this sky,
I wonder how high someone can fly.
They just move slowly,
Causing your heart to melt gradually.
I wonder if I could just lie down on a sheet of grass,
And just stare at this sky
It covers the darkness with clouds,
Taking you away to those ocean grounds.
I sometimes wonder that if the cloud will come and hug you as a lover.
I stand alone staring at this sky,
Causing me to drift away to sleep in its eye.
