holy butt this looks so good i hope it’s so good
Minute smiles sneak away,
While you immodestly sing as you may.
Your sunrise renditions awaken their ears
With lyrics they never hear.
Rather, they bask in the warmth of your Voice
As if it was their only choice.
Beneath the unabashed melody, their thoughts encase
And stir with an unsettling pace:
Maybe It’s a lovely lie
Like the idyllic waters nearby
That unfurl and appease
The mind’s erratic wheeze.
It does not await for audiences to subside
In fear of mere chide.
It submerges them and astounds
As It amplifies from the ground.
Suddenly, the doubts conceal
Once they learn that It is Real.
