the sky.

the sky. a poem by sandra.

when I stare at the sky
I wonder if I
see the same stars that you
watch with someone new
I don’t want to think it
but I cannot quit
wishing you would return
I will never learn
you were not good for me
we weren’t meant to be
time to stop holding on
to a love so wrong
staring at the sky though
glued to the window
I see a shooting star
hoping from afar
still wishing through the pane
oh it’s an airplane


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    I can never find proper ways to comment on poetry… being a poet myself, poems often leave me speechless. 😉

  4. You know, I feel the same way. I have a hard time. It’s frustrating sometimes because I want the writer to know I enjoyed their poem, but I don’t want to just say “I liked it” or “Great job” every time… it starts to sound insincere!

    And I love that you’re leaving a comment anyway even without knowing what to say. Which I’m hoping means you enjoyed it. Yeah, I’m going with that! 🙂

    May I also “leave a comment without knowing what to say” ? except that I liked it , but “like” seems so poor/short to express how much we liked it ????? 😉 😉
    And also I can’t keep repeating myself with “ah! and you were the one who didn’t “do” poetry ? 😉
    Turtle Hugs 🙂
