Standing While The Sun Lies

I see the sunset As it falls in my eyes It is warm and I cannot even touch it It is beautiful but I cannot even hold it I fly in different directions Wanting nothing more Than to see all of it Above Below Beside Around I travel just to witness All of its beauty before it is too late It stops me though Dead in my tracks Dead in my flight For when I just stand Still against the wind I realize I can see all of it And I am a part of it It touches my face I feel its warmth on my brow I stand Arms by my side I stand And I turn my back to it I try so hard to feel it With my eyes closed With my hands at ease Putting my body at peace It is so beautiful It is so unbelievable I open my eyes To see All of the colours it paints for me A palette, that is, a painting itself Opens a path in my mind One that need not be walked on But one that I stand tall on Head held high in appreciation As the sun leaves, once again
