Under the Stars



Have passed

But right now

My heart

Is crying out

In despair


This prison holds me

Bound by the chains

Forever inextricable

Left abandoned again


The tears of stars

Fall into the palm

Of my wounded hand

From afar

The promising calm

Slips away like sand


Murmurs in the dark

Never sought for

That lonely heart

Left cold


Weeping beneath the stars
