10:34
Walk in, alone
It’s different now
Without you here

10:47
Sparkly hat on my head
Streamers blind my eyes, celebrating
What is sure to come

11:02
I see you
Your once warm eyes speak
“What are we doing here?”

11:11
Make a wish
But you’re still over there
And I’m over here

11:26
Was it just last year
That you promised
You would never leave?

11:49
The countdown begins
I’m here, you’re there
I catch your eye

11:52
I shouldn’t do it
But gravity pulls
My heart to yours

11:54
Heart pounding
I don’t move
And neither do you

11:56
Four minutes
And my life will change
Forever

11:57
My mind flips- the page of a book
I can almost feel your hand safely on my back
And now nothing

11:58
I never thought
I wouldn’t be able
To trace the smooth lines across your palms

11:59
I take one step towards you
Hold my breath –
And you look down

12:00
Alone in a sea
Of colored confetti
Happy New Year.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Oh, You're super welcome... I'd love to read more by you,, but can't promise to read instantly as I got exams and will come back soon as in after 10th June.. Regards.
