Universe Resides Inside You

'twas by the beach
along the tickling waves' bubbles
I was behind you quite a few steps

We were walking against the wind
which blew your hair so gracefully
unveiling your fair white skin
An unparalleled beauty

Seeing you from the back
it just occured to my head

How can you be this wondrous?


'twas by the beach
along the grainy white sands
I was behind you quite a few steps

I saw the sun high up in the sky
I felt the grease caused by my sweat
I heard the chirps as birds flew by
matching the sound of my heartbeat

Seeing you from afar
some thoughts came into my head

I used to think that

this is how it feels to be alive
this is world
and this is nature

—but now I guess that is untrue
This is just me falling for you
because the universe resides inside you

    The last line "The universe resides in you" is incorrect !
    God and Satan are there, which one do you fee ? !

      Well, allow me to differ. Nope, I don't think they belong there. God is the one who made it, and satans are ones who catch those who lost sight of it :)
