"Some infinities are bigger than other infinities." - faults in our stars by John Green


It’s the gravity of that pulls us apart,
The light that brings us closer.
It’s rays trace good and moral,
And the sharp winds that cut through it all.

Don’t you ever dare lose that letter,
If it’s the only thing you can do.
It’s the life behind the ocean,
The soul behind the sky
And the string that binds them closely,

And if you ever may have the misfortune to ever lose that letter,
Look as hard as you can for it.
High and low for it,
Near and far,
Over the mountains,
Between the alleys,
For if its lost its like a thread haystack in a world of needles

And if by luck a destiny, you find that letter
Hold it closely and dear to your heart
Because next time it may not come,
Next time it won’t exist,
It may be the last of it
It may even be the last of you
Because the thing with the letter,
It’s one of a kind
And only if you have received it
Will you ever know the difference

Thanks so much for taking the time to read it molly. I guess gravity could stand for many things. The letter itself is a metaphor so i kind of wanted the reader to choose what it was. I know I'm not good with wording and can be a bit confusing. Thanks again for reading + rating!!

Impossible is not a word, it's just a reason for someone not to try.

Very, Very, Very good. :)  But the first stanza confused me you put "It's the gravity of that pulls us apart" The gravity of what? is my question. Other than that 5 stars.

Beautifully written!!!!! This poem is fluid–something that I struggle with in my own poetry. Deep and thought-provoking, it oozes creativity. The figurative language is presented so effortlessly. You used repition effectively, and used clever turns of phrase. One of my favorite lines was, "For if its lost its like a thread haystack in a world of needles" This poem is absolutely stunning, and one of my favorites. Congratulations!

I really like this poem. I think that it has a very good flow and it makes you think about what your letter is. If I may offer some advive there are a few grammatical mistakes such as in paragraph one on the first line, but overall it was still a great poem.
