But My Eyes - Poem by Manonton Dalan

Play Poem Video

… twirling key
on my hand
reminds me
of you, gone
was like yesterday
in jungles full of honey
bees never bit me
but crawl all over
especially when
we are together
they sing melody

to my ears; it’s absolute beauty
even blue sky could envy
pouring her tears, rustling
on treetops, deafening
we end up running for shed
and end up to softness
of a bed.

how beautiful that was
i could feel my hands clasp
my eyes look up
but all is empty; but my eyes

    all is empty, but my eyes..
    they keep on dreaming..
    of gorgeous sunrise...
    rest is lost among your words...
    like twirling stars around my world... (Report) Reply

    This is really Beautiful and its really nice I really like this bit to my ears; it’s absolute beauty
    even blue sky could envy
    pouring her tears, rustling
    on treetops, deafening
    we end up running for shed
    and end up to softness
    of a bed (Report) Reply
