Age 11 - Age 15, Love Poems

Starlight, scientists have stated,
Is only glows, heat rays created
When two small unseen specks collide,
Becoming one. They haven’t lied.
For you and I can see the truth
That stars are made of pure-breathed youth.
Two tiny heartbeats, yours and mine,
Merge, unite, and make the stars shine.

    There is nothing nicer than waking up in the morning, logging on, and seeing comments like yours. Thanks Janet. It really makes my day. Yeah I was 15 when I wrote that. We were studying some nuclear physics in school.

    Love, love, love this! Again, you amaze me with the depth of your skill. This is going to be one of my favorites, Anna. Kudos, and a cartwheel!

    Very visual and very melodic.

    The only line I am not sure about is ‘They haven’t lied.’ It seems to sit at odds with the rest. Perhaps insert another image? Or something with ‘flight’ or ‘wide’?

    Hope you don’t mind me saying so. Needless to say, feel free to tell me similar 🙂

    That is an amazing line. Love it.

  5. Anna Says:

    In the sentence “They haven’t lied,” “they” refers to the scientists which are referred to in the first line. Does that help?

    No I don’t mind at all that you ask. Thanks for the feedback!

    Yes, I was a bit slow on the uptake there. Anyway, I had to think of this clip while reading your poem. Hope you like 🙂
