You are the color of life

Without you

the rain is colder

You make the gray clouds

look like flying horses

and the falling leaves

like golden feathers

falling of

sleeping angels

When you smile

the sky behind you

twirl like a Van Gogh painting

and when you turn

your head slowly

the stars merge into

a necklace

hijacking a place on your neck.

I try not to write

a poem when I write you

but the words refuse me

and meet and hug

like escaping teenage lovers

from a classroom

The days with you

became music notes

and the moments sing

the musical measures of our story

“City of stars

Are you shining just for me!?”
