Short poems: Oceans, Midnight, and Stars

Take me back to the night. Courtesy.


My feelings are like oceans.

 At first it’s bright and blue,

but the deeper you get

the darker it gets.


Take me back to

that night 

when the stars were

our only witness.


the stars are

the only memory

that reminds me of you.
