By Star


I sit in my room
reading a book
while listening
to classical music.

Placing the main
character with myself
to try and live their life
as they live somebody else's.


I run a mile
just to feel
the breeze
through my hair.

To feel


just for

a moment.

And mostly.

I just put
a smile
on my face
and, move on.

    Drawing relations from the simplest of things we do everyday to form a beautiful poem about moving on. Loved it.

    I like this a lot. I can relate to it in so many ways, it's almost scary. It's so right, all of it. Moving on is hard, but this makes it seem natural and easy, if that's even possible.

    I love this too... I think it's a new favorite. The last line was my particular favorite. And running and feeling alive. But the last line... About smiling and moving on. Feels just right.
