My English Assignment
I was told to write
of my favorite place.
Perhaps describe the scenery?
I could talk about wild, roiling
And silent fields in the dark
With twinkling stars above.
I could speak of places that the sun
Caresses in a golden brush,
And powerful forests where the trees reign.
All of these places I love, but none
are what I long for.
What if my favorite place
Is not a place at all, but rather
What if it's the sound of your laugh,
or that shine in your eyes?
What if my favorite place is anywhere
that I can inhale your light?
To hell with the oceans,
The sun and the forests.
I'd spend an eternity floating in nothing
