Stargazer - A Shower...


I was sitting there where the crickets aren’t so annoying…where the grass just enough for a warm blanket…where no one would dare sit because it was our place...our spot…same spot where the moon was always a lovely lamp… same spot where you used to kiss me…the only spot where you know I’d rather be…and the only spot where I badly wished you’d rather be tonight…

a drip of rain, a drip of me missing you...
a drip of rain, a drip of me missing you...

I sat down in the misty grass checking your message in my iphone. “11 p.m. honey, don’t forget..meteor shower..tonight.” Ok, 15 minutes to go, I told myself. Was singing along with One Republic when my phone rang. It was my insomniac best friend dragging me to Wishing Well, a nice place for videoke bar.


“No meteors tonight, sweety. Get here before it rains” Peachy called sounding so sure. She was one of my best friends. Free-spirited, independent and unattached.


“Nah get here then I’ll go with you.” I teased.

“How sure are you there would be meteors tonight?” she asked.


Shockkks! I remember now…the timezone dear Lord! How could I forget to double check. Oh well, I’ll still wait. It’s not like meteors fall everyday. “I’ll go there after an hour, ok?” I told her.


It’s been a month since you left town. I hated it but you had to. Being away from you was exciting though. You don’t have to be looking at me so I know you’re here. You don’t have to call my name so you’ll be in my head. You don’t have to wrap me in your arms just so I could feel you next to me. Baby, you don’t have to be near…you’re a million too close already.


A strong rumble of thunder broke whatever thoughts I was having. I gazed up the dark sky to be amazed there were no stars. Ok, what is this? I thought. How could I be so lucky tonight?!


The rain fell drop by drop aching my skin. I quickly ran back to my jeep realizing it’s too late. My clothes all wet and my shirt a see-through now. WTF! I’ve reached a shed nearby and started to fix myself. “Hi.” Said a voice behind me. He was holding an umbrella. He subtlety swallowed when I looked at his face the first time. His jaws clenched while looking at my heart. I realized I was nearly naked with my wet white shirt. “I’m Jacob. Can I lead you somewhere?” he offered.


I was silent for a moment and tried to compose myself. But a flashback of his sharp eyes looking at me a while ago made my blood raised up to anger. “No, thanks.” I replied failing not to sound so rude as I walked away.


“Snob girl. Be thankful I was helping you.” He whispered back.


I stopped walking and was surprised what I just blurted out. “I’m really sorry. I don’t know how to thank someone talking to me looking at my chest instead at my eye.”


I left him rushing to drive away soon as I could. I didn’t want to be pissed off but I already was. Men like him, damn I swear I’m so prone of…But honey, you’re the only exception. ;)


Minutes later, I was in Peachy’s V-room. And she was singing her favorite song again. Silly “Alone” by Heart or whoever revived it.


Till now I always got by on my own…I never really cared until I met you…And now it chills me to the bone…How do I get you alone…


She stopped as she shouted, “My gosh Jewel, you’ve really been in a shower?!”


Never had the luckiest night.


0ne-twenty-five a.m.

Starless night…just rain…

Hi Blaise, what an awesome hub here. I am so taken by it. I could really empathise with you there sitting in your favorite spot trying to make the magic of the moment work. I was very drawn into this, and felt I might even be there watching you. I felt I was almost intruding on a private moment.

Are you going to follow it up? Oh, I hope so...you are a great writer. And I love the window opening into your world here. I never tire of it. Gotta tell Cheeky Girl right away! Take care, Blaise. I truly hope to read more. Always a fan of you...I'm a stargazer too.

Wow, this is really great. I really caught that sense of being there, and the no-show and the shower suddenly coming down. Kind of weird with the guy suddenly appearing offering to "lead" you somewhere. But I find I want to know what "happens next"...

You are very close to the 100 Hubs here I see! Woohoo! :)

Take care, moi friend! XOX

You can write Blaise - and I love reading what you write. Think it's going to be a long night - reading every word.

Thank you.


amorea13 5 years ago

Hi Blaise - didn't see my comment on one of your poems so I sent something similar again - oops! If you get the both of them just cut one - they both meant exactly the same: how you write beautiful words.


blaise25 profile image

blaise25 5 years ago from close to you... Author

Hi Amorea! :) Thank you for the wonderful comments. It's a great joy for someone who really loves writing to hear such words. Thank you.

It's ok Amor. You can comment more and more :) Ow, that rhymes..

Well- I'm carrying an umbrella from now on! And Blaise -you know I would never, ever look at your chest! Well...maybe if the light was dim...or maybe if I were checking your breathing to make sure it was okay...or maybe... I'm sorry Blaise. I'm lying. I'd bathe in every glow and shape that is you but only because your entire package is so beautiful - including your soul. God bless you Girl!

nice! I totally used that rain picture as a Bokeh effect to some photos I edited. working on photography and stuff. lol


blaise25 profile image

blaise25 5 years ago from close to you... Author

I love Bokeh. They are fascinating. :) Wow, you do photography? You're freaking creative, Nikki. Do you put them in your hubs?


Nikkij504gurl profile image

Nikkij504gurl 5 years ago from Louisiana

I've put a few of my own photos in my hubs. if it has NMJ Photography on it, I took it. If not I usually get pics from photobucket. I just recently learned how to add the bokeh effect to photos. I'm no pro. I just really want to get into photography.


blaise25 profile image

blaise25 5 years ago from close to you... Author

Yup, I remember one from the Curse of the Sea..I used to get mine from Photobucket, too. Now, Flickr or Tumblr. Gotta go over your hubs and see your other photos. :)


Nikkij504gurl profile image

Nikkij504gurl 5 years ago from Louisiana

yea i dont have many for my hubs because I try to get photos that match the poem and I didnt have a whole lot of pics saved on this computer. but I forgot about myspace, thats where I dug up those "vamp" photos for "Blood Fiend" and my avatar photo. and i have some photography pictures on there as well, mostly pics i took of myself though lol

We often consume so much time finding the right photo than writing a poem. Those photos are hot. I'd choose you than Bella Swan :)


Nikkij504gurl profile image

Nikkij504gurl 5 years ago from Louisiana

Yea it doesnt take me long to write a poem, but finding the right picture can take awhile. Haha Glad to know I'm better than Bella Swan! Hehe. Thanks!
