A Thousand Suns.

By TheProphetUntold


I grew.

A thousand flowers
and held them close in my arms,
but never my heart.


I knew.

Of a thousand suns,
though I knew only the burn,
never the warmth.

    We take ourselves for granted, at times, and never really appreciate what potential wonders we truly posses. Sometimes it takes continual reject --from any source-- to finally know where we truly stand with ourselves. Reading this has awoken something that's been sleeping deep inside of me... Thank you❤ Scholar

    Startling realizations taken in stride. I like the message and the brevity. Penned exceptionally well.

    This is so good..Stunning work that, despite its sadness, is beautiful.

  • A former member wrote: Of all sparse poems I've read thus far, this says the most with the least words. This life of which you speak, moments raped of the joy that should have been, the green which was cold and brown inside, the heat too hot for skin...this moves me so.

  • A former member wrote: I loved this.,..pretty and beautiful...very good word choices. Short but sweet.

  • A former member wrote: i want to favorite this, but your page is dumb. fucker.

  • A former member wrote: this is so short but packs such beauty and sorrow really a great piece
