Poetry by Annee

She Who Transcends the Stars

The sunshine framed her like a pair of wings

The moonlight her halo; her crown.

The sun itself envied her

For her smile was so far brighter

Her eyes of such warmth

That the sun was eclipsed

By her radiance

And the moon graced her every night

In a soft, faded glow

Just to catch a glimpse of her

And to listen to her breathe.

The ocean rushed onto the sand

Sweeping over her feet

Just to greet her:

The glowing girl

Golden girl

Quiet girl.

For everything that made her her,

Even the ugliest and harshest slices,

Were everything that made her lovely.

Even broken glass catches moonbeams

And beautiful still is it not?

Even at her darkest

She could outshine any star

And what could compare to she

Whom stars are dimmed in the existence of her smile?
