Fool - Poem by Marie Joyce B. Negapatan

Sitting beside you today

On a typical morning

Yet it’s rainy

You’re so near

I hardly forget my fears

I look at your eyes

And I see clearly

The vision of my long-lost dream

Standing right in front of me

If only I can reach you now

I want to feel the warmth of your touch

Trace the lines on your palm

And predict destiny

From your hands

You’re a heaven beyond the unreachable

Looking down on this poor, helpless girl

How can I possibly deliver

These conceived words

Written on these petals of rose

When you’re such a heaven

And I’m just a soul

Would you give me time to console

This aching heart

Caused by you

But still I’m longing for you so

But all I am to you

Is just a single soul

Floating on an empty horizon

So foolishly in love with you.
