I stepped into the new city,
full of people and lights.
I got lost in it's aroma
like a toddler watching the sky.
Strolling around at night,
my eyes stumbled upon a star.
Twinkling in hues of red,
out shining the moon from afar.
The star had hair locks
that curled upon her cheeks.
With dimples playing with her smile
a little game of hide & seek.
Hand carved in delicate features,
she had a little red nose
and big round eyes full of glitters.
Wrapped in a glowing brown skin,
she looked like a gift from god
that every beating heart craved to win.
But she only came up to me,
and in no time we became friends
as if we were destined to be.
We were different,
She closed her eyes
on retro classical songs
and banging my head over EDM,
to Eminem's raps I sang along.
But yet, we had our one song
that had the beats I loved
And the lyrics she longed.
We were different,
She was the debate champion of our college
And I was seen in silent corners,
enjoying my own solace.
But yet, only I understood her words
and only she heard my silence.
Everyone said to us-
"You guys should date"
But who dared to loose someone like her
for so called another "heart break".
What happened after that?
Sitting beside me asked the little brat.
I said, she is still my soulmate
the one who heard my silence,
the one I didn't date.
It was 11:30 at night
yet with utmost curiosity
his eyes were shimmering bright.
Where is she now? he said.
I told him, I'll tell you but after that
you will go to bed.
He nodded in delight.
In my trembling voice I said,
Although her home is very far
but strolling around in night,
when your eyes stumbles upon a star.
Twinkling in hues of red,
out shining the moon from afar.
You will know, that's her.
I know, it's her.

**Trigger warning: brief discussion of abuse.** "Selfish" - a poem by Ashten Light. Friendly reminder that non-physical abuse is just as abusive. Emotional, verbal, and mental abuse are also extremely detrimental and painful to go through. I am so proud of everyone who has come out the other side of such awful situations. Break the cycle. 馃挅 Sending love! ~tags~ #poetsofinstagram #writersshare #poetstribe #poetrycommunity #writersaroundtheworld #poetscity #poetsandpoetryy #shewrites #poetictthoughts #words #poems #poets #poetry #instapoetry #poetryisnotdead #poetryrise #poetrybook #inkedpoetry #bleedingsoulpoetry #poetsandwriters #warriorsofmentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalillnesspoetry #depression #anxiety #adhd #mentalhealth #sadpoetry #mentalhealthpoems #mentallyill https://www.instagram.com/p/CNTFdAoFLVD/?igshid=2v72vh1gfcz7

"Marry the Stars" - a poem by Ashten Light. Sometimes I feel as though my wounds are too deep for anyone to ever help me heal... that I'm a lost cause, that if I love someone I should want them to find someone better than me. I don't have a solution for this problem yet, but I hope I will one day. ~tags~ #poetsofinstagram #writersshare #poetstribe #poetrycommunity #writersaroundtheworld #poetscity #poetsandpoetryy #shewrites #poetictthoughts #words #poems #poets #poetry #instapoetry #poetryisnotdead #poetryrise #poetrybook #inkedpoetry #bleedingsoulpoetry #poetsandwriters #micropoetryfeatures #love #lovequotes #sadqoutes #sadlovequotes #lovepoems #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalillnesspoetry #qotd https://www.instagram.com/p/CNP6roVp1pv/?igshid=ji74ezj8aq9
