Shooting Stars Prologue

The stars sure did look bright that night. I don’t think I ever really came to the roof and just started stargazing until that night. I saw Vanessa put the bottle down in between us and lay her head on her purple pillow.

“What a view.” She muttered with a smile on her face. I moved my head to try and get real cozy.

“What if we see a shooting star?” I asked her with a grin.

“How cool would that be? I’d wish for money.” My primadonna best friend proclaims proudly. I chuckle and hesitate before sharing what I would wish for.

“Well, what about you?” Vanessa turns to me with one of her eyebrows raised

“Well.” I mockingly repeated. After I saw her gaze fixated on me I knew that she really wanted to know.

“Er, If I tell you it may not come true!” I crossed my arms and pretend like I’m really not going to tell her, knowing me, it was bound to come out.

“Oh come on, it will come true! don’t be like that.” Her puppy eyes came out as I rolled my eyes.

“I’d wish for love.” I say quietly, Vanessa does a double-take and this time she was the one rolling her eyes.

“You’re so cheesy Lei, That was real corny.” Vanessa took out the Doritos and begins munching.

“While that is true, it doesn’t matter anyway because as you can see” I pointed to the sky     “No shooting stars.”

As if a higher power was listening, seconds later the same location in the sky that I pointed to and we were both looking at was engulfed in shooting stars. Not just one but dozens of them. We turn to each other with our eyes widened, both in disbelief.

“Woah, Are we tripping?” Vanessa exclaims shock heard all over her voice.

“Not this time.” I manage to say as fast as the shooting stars came they went

“Did you even wish for anything?” I turn to her and see her eyes still glued to the night sky.

“Girl, we already made our wishes! That was crazy though.” She finally turns to look at me with a Goofy grin “I’m going to be rich!” She gets up and starts dancing. I can’t help but laugh.

“You really think so?” I ask her unconvinced “I mean I know shooting stars symbolize wishing and having your wishes come true but, you really think it will?” Vanessa stops dancing and looks me dead in my eye.

“Lei, you have to believe.”

That night was one of the most special nights of my life. It changed the trajectory of my life and of Vanessa’s life. There was magic in the air and we were blessed enough to gain from it. After we saw the shooting stars I poured my glass and her glass of wine and we toasted to the stars and the wishes. Not really knowing what would come next. We both had 10 AM classes the next morning at different universities so we called it a night early. The next day is when the magic would really come to life.

Cry All The Time

She would cry

Cry cry

All the time

Because you left her with 2 kids

And left me with just my mind

I would see the tears fall from her eyes all the time

Because she had a fatherless son and daughter to raise

Because you couldnt find the time so she raged

She would cry

cry cry

All the time

Because you broke her heart in two and she would see the pain transmute into her daughter too

She would cry

Cry cry

All the time

Because everything she asked from you

You gave to another woman who never had to grow your seeds

And that alone just made her heart bleed

I would cry

Cry cry all the time

Because i grew up feeling abandoned by the figure who was never supposed to leave me stranded, supposed to never leave my side

So i would cry

Cry cry all the time

Because i got a taste of what it would have been like to have you around

And you snatched that away

And you let me down

I would cry

Cry cry all the time

Because i had low self esteem because when you left her it felt like you left me

@nocturnalxo

Vulnerable

I stay vulnerable

And its noticeable

I Wear my heart on my sleeve

Have my laundry in the streets

Dirty it seems

Give it up for peace

Since it seems to decrease

The never ending shame that used to eat me

So here i am

Transparent as ever and

I wouldnt want it any other way

Because this is my spirit

It came to lift weights

@nocturnalxo

Sometimes

Sometimes

Sometimes i wish you never put hands on me

Sometimes i wish we were really meant to be

Sometimes i wish things went another way

Instead of the way it led us to today

Sometimes i dont care and im fine

Other times the PTSD blows my mind

Sometimes im good and i feel free

Other times i feel locked in the chamber of my reality

Sometimes i hate you and i know thats how its supposed to be

But the hate eats me alive its a never ending cycle of grief

Sometimes i want to betray myself and go back

Until i snap out of the desperation that i have packed

Most times i dont think about you

Most times i know that you were just another fool

Most times i know that its self harm to think about a time when you and me were warm

Birds

Birds start chirping

A tune that fits the flow of the earth turning

A tune so angelic the angels are yearning

To hear it every time they’re around

The birds are chirping

A tune that fits a nice summer breeze

A tune that fits the picture of ease

To hear it whenever we’re around trees

The birds are singing

A song made by divine healing

A song that only can be given

To creatures who use their wings and fly

@nocturnalxo

Pink Cloudz

Poetic rhymes to pass the time

Passion flows as the record beholds

Symphonies that speak to me

My inspiration singing through

The muse to it all is you

Pink clouds

Share a picture about

Love

The one we all desire

The one that takes us higher

The image of you painted in the sky

A kind of image only God can create this fine

And still i stare

Still i continue to breathe the blessed air

Of hope and prosperity

Its all beautiful

Its all what it’s meant to be

@nocturnalxo

Sky

Sky is hypnotic

The dreams felt erotic

Took a sip of that tonic

Now im floating in the ocean

Sky is so blue

Still i look back and all i think about is you

Your figure in the clouds

This obsession is wearing me out

Abstract dreams

Believe in the realm of fantasies

The sky paints a pretty picture

Of life after death and thats when ill be witcha

Tupac Amaru Shakur

Since a child i’ve looked up to you

your essence of charisma is what made me fall in love too

Although taboo and a little out of the ordinary

Your songs would help guide me, it is still something very extraordinary

Your words would show me to much wisdom at such a young age

You inspired me to be more than just one page

You was a deep complex dude

I could relate so much to you

Just a kind of vibe only you can provide

And i feel your heart because it feels just like mine

Although i wish you could be here

i understand that this place caused you way too many tears

So i say hello from the other side

I know you with afeni going on your joyride

To thugz mansion the place that you reside

doing your job as an angel

Just know every time i pray i say your name

Because you helped mold me

And forever in the highest regards

Thats how i will hold thee

Shallow

When the pool of water doesn’t reach certain depths

We aren’t able to get deep it works like that in life

Shallow streams that play make believe

Illusions of depth makes you drown in dreams

Wave after wave

Graves that we’ve paved

Conclaves that just sway

In the deepest part of the ocean

Where my darkness is buried with my emotions

where the truth is always spoken

And the motion of the ocean leaves no commotion

@nocturnalxo

Stagnant

When the world stops

And our lives are put to a halt

We look around in hopes that quality time tops

The excessive distraught our life has taken in

Unemployment line gets longer

And the debts get stronger

Until we find a way to maintain

Some cope with drugs

Some sustain with love

Until reality kicks

And life continues to take hits

On the ones we love to bits

If you asked me how 2020 would go

I would say “oh, just like a show.”

But i thought more of good times

Instead of fear factor, times 9.

Living in fear

Low vibrational energy is near

But what can we do

When even the country’s leader is about of the crew

I hope better dayz are near

Till then we pray to lose the fear
