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.
