Here’s a poetry I wrote after reading the book – The Sun Is Also A Star. Though, you need not have read the book to read the poetry. It is devoid yet so attached to the actual book. I will be talking about this book later! Have fun!
Kudos to Nicola Yoon for the beautiful book.
They say we write about stars,
which glow themselves in dark,
But, there’s one which lightens
when nobody sees the blink,
it shows when black hides,
to show the scars.
Maybe, we’re too scared to face
The truth which succumbs in red light,
He glistens up all alone,
yet, never shows the dysphoria
which lies beneath.
The stars twinkle all night,
taking away the monophobia of mine,
closing the anagapesis deep within,
How can I not write about these?
And, yet, I smile now,
Each time it burns and pricks my skin,
He strengthens the insides of me,
That I’ll shine out bright
when I stand up high and smile.
Blooms so bright,
I can barely meet my eyes,
And yet the warmth replenishes pain,
when the cold subdues slowly.
When the moon comes high,
We search for the light clustered behind,
And, we stare at shining stars,
Hoping that we could be them, together.
I wait here on top,
Feelings- like an open book
To let them glow up-front,
of the red, orange and yellow.
Warming the heart and piercing through scars
Let me write tonight as I realize,
The Sun Is Also A Star.
