As I See It

I see the world in colors,
Still unnamed
Feel love and heartache,
Like thunder
Swallow the spice, salt, sweet
And sour
Of life's experiences
And experiments
I wear little armor
Protecting the drawbridge
Of my heart's entrance
I exchange handshakes
Not head shakes
To the stranger's I come across
I feed on the beautiful greens
Of grass and summer fields
Til full from feast
And needing to lie beneath silent stars
I will never grow tired from wishing on

This is one of most beautiful poems of ever read, nothing but pure emotion throughout, every verse tethered to innocence
