The last time I spoke up you made me realize all who live will surely end as dust!

The last time I spoke up
you made me realize all who
live will surely end as dust!
That eternity wasn't so far from reality.
I saw twenty-four stars on a noonday,
my tongue was stuck to the roof of my mouth.
My skin wore the garment of pain and regret
as my lungs gasped for air,
My glass fragile heart were shattered
into a thousand shards because
my lips sang the music you did not like.
[guess I'm still unlearned in making speeches].
And now?
I still wish to pour my heart to you,
But the thoughts of our last
encounter grips me with fear,
So here I am:
pouring my heart through my pen,
I hope someday you'll read the letters
on this plain sheet & know that
YOU'RE MY HERO!
For the princess you raised is indeed
now a product of your words of wisdom
and she'll forever sing your praises to all around her.
