More People

Just a short poem about the fact that there is more people in the world that you know.. Submitted by louise (Award 565), age 16

Bang! The world stood still,
In one forlorn, young, soldiers mind,
Thinking of his beloved wife,
And her deep chocolate eyes,

Crash! The world shattered,
In one numerously broken heart,
Remembering his treasured son,
And his lost emerald eyes.

Slap! The world stopped sharp,
In one naive girl’s face,
Wishing for her departed mother,
And her exceptional saffron eyes.

Crack! The world was crushed,
In one timorous boy’s mind,
Calling for his sincere love,
And her malevolent, devil red eyes.

Out there, in another corner of the world,
More eyes are deftly watching,
More hearts are solemnly beating,
More minds are innocuously wondering.

Out there, there’s someone like you.
