Rose, Sun, and Rain

Two of one peculiar kind, grasping the same space underneath the sky. That’s who they are, that’s what they are.

She is a girl learning to love,
dazzled by the way a hand is reaching out.
For the first time ever,
she knows she is wanted.

She is a girl learning to love,
and her heart begins to know hatred also.
Black against the night sky
never felt this lonely before.

Tears upon tears,
harsh words following another.
Two of one peculiar kind,
grasping the same space underneath the sky.

She is a girl learning to love,
wondering why the heck her heart refuse to slow down.
Is this pain?
Am I sick?
Will I die?

He is a boy knowing the finiteness of love,
whisper to her words of comfort.
Give her the melody of all the romantic catastrophe
and tell her that your tale won’t be so identic.

Grant her the happiness of hope
since she is a girl learning to love
and you are a boy
refusing to see the ending of one’s fond.

This piece was inspired by Hyunjin and Da Hee’s relationship in TWENTY-TWENTY web series and its soundtrack, Just Like The Rain by GRAY.

I love a world made of stories, music, beautiful illustrations, warm drink, fresh fruits, and an ocean of knowledge.
