THIS IS A COLLECTION OF SHORT POEMS UNDER A SINGLE TITLE



LXII. in the dead of night,
i once asked a sun;
"what is beauty?'
         when left in silence,
i took that sun from the sky
and in my anger,
          i clutched it in my hand,
and jammed my fist into my pocket.
          then i sat in the dust
as the sun branded beauty into my palm.

   - a lesson on being burnt.


What did you think when you read that? What did you feel? Even if it was the most unintelligible scene or incomprehensible nonsense, tell me, please. I'd like to know.
I seriously encourage imagination <3
