Message from Writer

I'm an old soul trapped in a teenage body.
The Gentleman in disguise.
The boy in a tuxedo.

Why hello! It is an honour to be your humble acquaintance m'ladies and gentlemen! The name's Rain.
I love writing more than writing itself can put into mere words and it is rather fantastic that I have stumbled upon a community that feels the same.

We all live beneath the same sky but we all see different horizons, different sunsets. And when I write, I give a glimpse at what sort of sunsets I see, and what horizons I chase after...

"Some infinities are bigger than other infinities." -A.W
"Lovely is a lovely word that should be used more often." T.F
"Be a little kinder than you have to." -E.L

I wish you all the most lovely day.

if i'm the moon then you're the sun

August 4, 2022

if i'm the moon then you're the sun

I'm always reflecting your brazen light
Even though you're almost never in my sight
A light, a right, in a world so wrong

"Opposites attract," they say
So why can't we behave 
Like that?

I orbit around, the world always hiding you from me
We're in the same solar system but have different orbits
I chase the sunsets but you always set too quickly
Gone, too fast

And then I'm up in the night
Reflecting your light which I cannot see
I don't want this
In the sky all alone

The humans below
They think I'm so happy
Graced and adorned with stars
But

They always forget
Even the stars lie above the moon
So I wish upon a star, upon all of them 
That 

The light that I cannot see 
Can become the light
That

I can see
Touch
Feel
Kiss

But

It was not meant to be
You're too hot
Too bright
Too far

The wrong orbits at the wrong time
The stars just won't align...

---

And so

The moon

Grew
 
cold

empty

barren

grey

lifeless


the moon became

the moon

.



























if i'm the moon then you're the sun

 
"The stars whirl further away from me
A wish gone
Another
And another

Until space is dark
Empty
Void
Gone"

This is ending number 2 if anyone's interest is piqued. ;)

    okay first of all this is so beautifully written, I love the rhyming in some areas and it's so emotional in a way, super impactful piece of work!
    re: thank you so much, it is very hard to explain and I had a little bit of an attack so I figured why not right about it :)

    Re: Ahh, thank you! Nice to know someone appreciates my oftentimes crazy ideas! Also, this piece is lovely! You may know I have a total obsession with the night sky, from a poetic/writing perspective as well as a scientific perspective, so this really appeals to me.

    Oooh, I really like this one. Do you get these ideas when you’re around this Raivenne you speak of? She sounds delicate and beautiful by the way you write, she seems to spark ideas.. or is it just me?
    Maybe I’m just rambling XD
