Under the Stars

-

Moments…

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

Eternally

Weeping beneath the stars
