Look Into Me This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Don’t mind my vacant, flustered, fuddled stare,
I’m like this because minds do roam afar,
When they’re witness to your blissfully rare
Pair of wane eyes; how they resemble stars.
God, how they shine, surpassing all others,
Glistening, glittering, glad fully bright.
How they passed before, my brain now wonders,
And yet a wonder I behold each night.
Every morning I wake, captivated,
Alive from the sunlight through my window,
Reminded of a soul now agitated,
Dying as I wait for your shadow.
And while the sun blinds, your stars glow golden,
Our full, enamored stare, eyes wide open.

I didn't like the idea of staring at stars but I do like the idea of thinking of someone that is gone and remembering him/her. Words are great and flow is good. 5 stars.

You keep the rhythm constantly and provide rich imagery in each line. I love this.

your writing reminds of poetry written in the late 1800's and early 1900's
