in your arms

in your arms

the sun has fallen
the moon refuses to rise
loneliness sits beside me
wearing a pink carnation
mourning the death of my pride
fear shaves in my mirror
he only has one eye
thus, he fails to see
the shooting stars in the window
no wait, they are the headlights
of cars passing by
so, I can’t make a wish
but if I could…..
I’d wish to die in your arms
just to hear you whisper goodbye

  1. Going through a time, here… a relative not doing well – if the couple adored poetry I would offer this to them – but they are more practical – perhaps romantic in a different way that I cannot see. So I will have to sigh for them…

  2. “loneliness sits beside me
    wearing a pink carnation
    mourning the death of my pride”

    Loneliness may be clothed here, but your insight on pride, loneliness and fear are bared for all to see in all its poignant intricacy. This is a shockingly relatable; terribly heart wrenching, beautifully designed poem.
    Do you even know how effortlessly moving your art is, Drew?

  3. Strangely (I never use this adjective) the first words I thought of to describe this piece: hauntingly beautiful. That incredible description at the beginning to describe when the sun goes down and the moon doesn’t appear, mixed in with no stars and car lights merely passing. It really paints a picture of longing, and then for even more extra depth, you end it on the powerful: “just to hear you whisper goodbye”. An amazingly written piece Andrew.

  6. WOW!!!! This was absolutely touching Drew, nothing more stronger than love worth dying for…. if this happened at the end of a movie, there wouldn’t be a dry eye in the theatre! The illusionistic vision of shooting stars when they were just headlights symbolizing a limited time with one another, and the beauty of a dying wish….you are amazing!🌹🌹

      1. My reading is a mere fraction of your beautiful writing Drew, it is simply a joy to read and take in your poetic magic and feed the mind with the beautiful images you write only to comprehend them into words of explanation. I should thank you, actually, we thank you.🌹
