10 May Poetry Submission: ‘Let Me’
BY ARVIN ARBIZO; ART BY JAPHET PAYPA
As I gazed upon your eyes,
I thought I would find that beautiful paradise,
Where love can truly suffice.
Yet everything was a lie.
Those empty words
Made me believe you were my world,
Embracing your perfect imperfections.
Realized it was all deception.
Accustomed to your resplendent lightness,
Let me move into your darkness
Let me fix your broken art.
Let me melt your frozen heart.
