'What I Found In The Attic' - Poem by Kevin Wang

days of the past
of the east west south north
i'd look to find that missing piece
i'd look nd find a rusty hinge and the rusty lock
i'd take out the chisel and the mallet
careful for it not to break
cuz this is my head
my brain
all so rusty
all so dusty
cuz look what I found in the attic
the deep chamber of my heart
nd what I found is a treasure
come on
X marks the spot
cuz cupid shot me with an arrow
when ur lips said I like u too

but all these films are all so distorted
everything is all a blur
but i'd say
“Don't give up, just keep seeking, just keep it on
cuz i'd soon bring meet u again”
even if time is distorted
nd having a heart of a rusty ratchet
i'd piece them one by one
nd bring out the truth from within

the depths of my soul
to keep u safe and warm
this time I would meet u once again
nd not to see u swiftly glide past my eyes again
not so hot
yet not too cold
but just right for me

im still rummaging through these dusty boxes, memories of you
u should see what u've done to me
listening to my problems
but hewing me to a shape of whatnot
but u'd still restore my heart's content
to hear the resonance of your cheery peppy voice

u'd be what I say
hmmm how do u say
oh ya...the perfect girl
cuz I have a lump on my head, my heart

i'd become a Romeo
yet not a teen to linger in the shadows no more
cuz where a man lives to die
i'd lose to tell my story
cuz look what I found

look what I made with my own two hands
a song for u
though i'd sing it off key, a bit
i'd wait below ur balcony door
just around that corner
for u
not a stalker
but a lover with a present for u

there's even the flowers' stems
I twined to a crown
for my queen
i'd still be right there
cuz when u told me that day
I found the day
yet I fell in the water too

look what I found
in this attic
this...treasure of mine
my heart
my mind
cuz this is for u
