Thoughts - Poem by Keiromi Nozomu
I look below
Bleached cotton-candy blanket
Want to capture this moment (on paper)
Pull out a pen (that’s what I do)
Can’t describe it,
Words aren’t working. (huh?)
Why? Why are my words against me? (help…)
Try, try…TRY again…again. Don’t fail damn it.
Cotton, heavenly soft…light…
Mist..rolling, floating, drifting…
Still failing. I’m failing. Why? ! (why…)
‘Cause all I can think of is you.
Focus, concentrate. (c’mon.)
Don’t fail, please…don’t. (please?)
Canvas of colors across a bleached ocean of sky. (what?)
No! That’s not right…(ugh.)
Hmmm…cotton, silk, beauty…(huh?)
I can’t quite grasp it…
Wait! Almost…there, it’s-
The one…reminds you of me. (a good song)
I know, ‘cause you told me so,
And now, it makes me…think of you.
Only…one more time-zone.
Only…until I can text you again. (smile)
How…did I get so addicted?
When…did things change?
I feel myself slipping, (falling)
I’m crushin’ yet again. (sigh)
It’s crazy distracting.
I’m crazy guilty but I like it (heh…)
Maybe it’s better, (to begin with)
That we haven’t seen each other. (often)
Maybe it’s better, (maybe not)
That we’re crushing on each other. (in this way)
You dared me to,
Write something about you.
I tried and..I failed.
Intend…to write about you,
From pen, comes just pretty scenes. (sunset)
Intend…to write of nothing, (sleep)
Then from my pen…fountains of ink stain the page (you)
Do you have any clue how…
A little scary to be honest,
The way I act…when texting you.
It’s not even,
Your piercing green eyes. (wow)
It’s not even,
Your curly blond hair (sexy)
See, when I think…of you…
I smile because…
Remembering all the times…you made me smile.
