Appearances

in Hawaii(I can dream, right?)

Appearances aren't the only things that matter

You can look at a bright smile

And loving eyes

You can see a person's disguise

And believe you know them

When you don't
 

I looked at you

You and your bright smile

Your loving eyes

Your colorful hair

And with a few kind words

I thought I knew you

I should've known

Wise words

Come with

Bad experiences

 

If I had looked deeper

If I had tried to know you 

Maybe things would've been different

Maybe I could've helped you

Maybe I could've stopped it

Maybe I could've stopped you

Maybe I wouldn't be here, sitting on this pavement, trying not to cry, but-

No.

No.

Maybe, but-

No.

 

Maybe I need to stop looking to the past

And expecting it to change

Maybe I need to stop reliving that moment

In between

When you were alive

And when you were dead

In my mind

Even now,

I see it behind my eyelids

Waiting for me to blink

But maybe I need to stop letting it tear me apart

Maybe I need to remember

Who you were

And not how you ended

Maybe I need to remember

Where I am

And who I am

Because of you

Maybe I need to look through the tears 

And see that the world is a beautiful place

After all

Maybe I need to live in the moment

ANd leave you 

To rest

Because I believe

With all of my heart

You would rather me here

Than living in your grave

And maybe

Just maybe

I'll start looking past appearances

Looking through smiles

And disguises

And most importantly

Looking through that crust of hatred 

On this Earth

And learning to see the beauty

And maybe 

I can look into myself

And see how

To keep living

Without you

There

Ugh, I kinda got a little

Ugh, I kinda got a little choked up by this! Great job!

This poem was pretty powerful with your word choice. It had a strange flow, but the messages within gave it some uniqueness! I could detect sadness, but hope as well. Amazing execution. laugh
