When the sun shines through dirty windows

and illuminates a scene--

five friends laughing, none truly knowing why,

yet knowing that this is where they belong,

what they deserve,

and what they desire.

Who they want to be

and who they will become--

knowing that for a moment,

none of that mattered,

because they all smiled

because they all had each other

 

When the sun shines on a couple,

holding hands,

leaning into each other,

taking in her eyes,

breathing in his smell. 

Dreaming it will last,

knowing it will not

but for that moment,

none of that mattered,

because they had smiled,

and they loved each other.

 

When I see the sun,

and the way it hits the trees--blooming with flowers, 

the rain that smells like sweet mud,

the steady stones in the moving waterfall,

and the pure clouds in the vast sky--

clear morning filled with birds,

high noon where you can feel the world rising,

sunset when everything seems to wear a veil of orange...

at times like these, when I breathe it in...

it doesn't matter what happened,

why I cried,

who left me,

deceived me,

hurt me..

None of that matters,

because I will smile.

This is outstanding! I'm smiling just reading it. It's such a happy, joyous poem.
This is good. It's best where it's being really specific and image-y. "rain that smells like sweet mud" and "

sunset when everything seems to wear a veil of orange" are both great, descriptive lines. It reminds me of the "When I do count the clock that tells the time" Shakespeare sonnet (#12 maybe?).
This is gorgeous!  You really have talent here...I love the analogy with the stones to the waterfall, almost like we cannot stop what's going on--was that an analogy?  Regardless, it was a pretty line :) good job!

See You At a Happy Ending

Nothing seems to be changedOnly you and meI’m still standing aloneBut you’ve begun to disappear Step by step, I count and countThe memories pass through my headWherever I go, wherever I lookYou are the painful light I see Bursting tears begin to flowI have nothing to do only let you goBecause I’m not at the destinationWhere you always want to be The way is so longAnd I’m only a stronger you metNow I’ve got tired of this long journeySeeing this hard separation I’ll try to make my heart with the…See More

Hi!!! I'm new here, Sorry I don't know anyone.

The goddess of my dreamsSleep silently and honorably,sleeping in a dream without anything wrong,sleeping without a cause to make a nightmare come to life as being watched over,Dreams at are not taken by people but given by one person,Dreams at make no reality seem real but far fetched,Dreams from a different body and a different soul feeling as the breathing of this being becomes lighter then water and air, Falling in an endless space or time never to be hurt again and again,Falling into a…See More
