Crystals

rock_cry

Stars are shining in the night sky
Reminding me of you
Telling me not to cry
Even though I don’t know what to do

I see their beauty and I stare
Feeling close but not quite there
Realise why daddy said that:

Life is so much like crystals
Don’t let the sparkle confuse
In the end, all you feel is bitter
But the light always gets you through

I remember the heartbreaks and betrayals
Stabbing like ice on my back
My heart-glass broke in misery
With two thousand permanent cracks

So here’s the night sky and I stare
Feeling close but not quite there
Realise why daddy said that:

Life is so much like crystals
Sparkling and attractive from afar
The most broken are the ones that shine the most
And you have nothing, really, to heal the scars.

So here I am, remembering
All our golden days
With all their happiness, joy and warmth
So real, even today.

And now I have decided –

Life may be so much like crystals
The sparkle making anyone confused
But I’m not gonna feel bitter
Or sick or tired or even used.

‘Coz life, it’s so much like crystals
The light always shows you the way
The happiness is all that stays with me
The bitterness, it has to go away.

And life is so much like crystals
Each one as broken as can be
But I’ve found a way to heal the scars
And that way is me.


This is just something that came to my mind one night (I was actually doing Maths then 😛 ) and I just had to write it down. The idea of crystals resembling life in so many ways was just really appealing. Since then I’ve been waiting to post this, but not really getting the chance.

It’s actually more like a song than a poem, and I had even come up with a perfect tune for it when I’d written it, but then I… fell asleep. It was like 1 a.m and I was feeling very sleepy and satisfied, so it was natural. And when I woke up in the morning… the tune was gone. Vanished. Just like that. I’ve tried coming up with other tunes since then, but they’re just not as perfect. So I think I’m gonna let it stay this way, with the faint memory of a vanished tune hanging there beneath the words…

Tell me what you guys think of this poem/song, I’m eager to know your thoughts!
