One Beautiful Moment

An Attempt at Poetry May 23, 2022

There are moments seeping through my fingers, 

Slipping through my fingers. 

Beautiful moments, 

Sad moments. 

Tragic moments. 

There is that moment when I saw a boy. 

He was beautiful. 

Not beautiful like a girl, beautiful like a boy.

Like a young man. 

I fancied him my first love, and I adored him. 

We were both young, very young. 

So naturally, that moment slipped through my fingers. 

Yet, years later, I still fancy him my first love.

Years later, that moment still seeps through my fingers. 

There is another moment when I wrote a poem. 

It was about my mother, and how much I loved her. 

It was a beautiful poem. 

Not the kind you read in poetry books. 


This one was child-like, filled with stupid ryhmes to make it sound aunthetic. 

It was beautiful nevertheless.

In fact, it was so beautiful I printed it out and gave it to her. 

I don’t reckon what she said when I did. 

 Perhaps that moment has slipped through my fingers. 

There is also another moment. 

The moment I came home from a party, tears in my soul, a smile on my lips. 

That was the moment when I discovered I was worthless, 

And then later, there was another moment when I discovered I was not. 

There were moments when I cried myself to sleep, 

Moments when I drank myself to sleep, 

Moments I was fucked to sleep. 


There were also moments I laughed so hard I had stitches, 

And others where I tried to dance but couldn't, 

Others when I sang to a boy I just met, 

Others when he sang to me. 

There are all these moments,

Running around in my head; 

Seeping through my fingers, 

Slipping through my fingers. 


All of them; 

A one beautiful moment.
