Josh's Ode to His Nepal

Don't worry Nepal cause i am coming home
i don't know why
could it possibly be an ineffable feeling
that constantly places a tear into my vulnerable eye.
i really don't know
maybe its your effortless beauty
hidden by the disparity
creating undeniable poverty.
Or could it be
something else?
a feeling felt
underneath my left breast,
that make it possible at night
(with the knowledge of You)
to put my head to a comfortable rest.
Because my Dear
only the ocean's separating us
cause me to fear,
that my idolatrous feelings toward you will disappear.
the memories and roots
cause me to realize
i love you,
hopefully, i will be looking at You when i die.
The last sight in my eye.
