A night full of lighting bugs
Galaxies over our head
Waiting to be discovered
Shooting stars falling to their deaths
As we sit here in silence
Knowing the end is approaching
Like a slow death
For a moment
The butterflies came back
And drew a smile upon my face
But butterflies are free
They never stay
Like a hot drink
On a winters day
I slowly rise from the ground
You held my hand
And know
As we look into each other's eyes
Moments of our past resurface
We laugh, we cry,
We embrace
Silence once again overcomes us
We know it's here
The time to say goodbye
Closing that window to the heart
To make sure love doesn't
Slowly leak
I turn away
And in a blink of an eye
You're gone
Only a memory of you
Only your ghost
It's ok my dear
Let your energy be free
I know tomorrow night
We will meet
Once again
In dreams.

My name is Natalia, I was born in Puerto Rico. I live a very simple life with my husband and 2 beautiful kids.
I keep my heart humble, and my words beautifully vulnerable.
I write because it is in my soul.
I write because I don't know how to live without it.
There's something beautiful that only poetry can create in your soul.
