I am a seventeen year old girl from the United States just trying to make my way through life.|
I draw, write poetry, and sing. I am striving to improve my skills, so feedback and advice in general is appreciated!
sun not sun babynever was i a moonchild, not for a single minute.sun not sun baby by zwecat
quite the opposite, but from here on the axis,
i have a perfect view of those sensitive,
who shed their heavy coats only for nightfall's melodies,
opening up the same way as milky flowers do- at the contact of lunar light.
i tried to be the same as them
tried to dampen the gold in my hair and sing their songs because wasn't i, too, a tough shell over sensitive parts, waiting to be unlocked?
but the moon never cast her spell on me
and i never did belong.

the sun is strange. we need it, we depend on it,
and yet look too long and you're incinerated,
consumed. i know i was born in the light-
i know the light welcomes me
i know that my fate is in the sky and burning bright
but do you ever get the fear that what you know you need will break you?
that the sacrifice wouldn't leave you grateful? that being free is painful?
somehow, just knowing, the love you accept will burn you alive. and then you really will hav

but I fear the sun.

All I want is all that makes me shiver
The thought, clammy hands, they fumble,
all I thought I wanted
all I thought I needed
we turn away.
goodbye, we say.
maybe next time, we say.
sliding our backs down the door we shut
our regrets just moments after.
Hey, I know in life there were a lot of doors
closed in your face, and sometimes, I was behind them.
Your love was stretched too thin to mask the void in someone
Hey, I know you're bitter,
cursing me and my closed doors,
but I don't really know
how to open them.
