One Beautiful Moment

x`
An Attempt at Poetry Oct. 10, 2020

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. 

No. 

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.
