You were the elements.
as if they fit seamlessly into your existence
As opposed to you fitting into theirs
The moon in your eyes reflecting
The unnatural ultra violet within
Stars, that can only be magical touch
For those in your orbit.
Dark nights like your dark skin
Truly undeniably African within.
Snow for the tears and fears
That numb your soul
Sometimes that makes it hard to go on. But you always find a way back home.
The sun in your gaze
Which brings all that is hidden in me to light.
The sky for your imagination, talents, limits
That will be endless and obsolete.
Wind and rain for your tempestuousness and unpredictabilities
Love in your heart, and dew on your lashes.
As you lay on a bed of dreams and green
At one with your true self, I think two things;
You fascinate me
Make me want to be in your stratosphere
2. You scare me
Because you found your element in being the elements
But I have not found mine.
