Stealing the Stars

-

A lonesome whisper

Beneath the dark cloak of sky

Limned faintly in slumber

The forlorn silence of goodbye

-

Hopelessly, I was dreaming

Granted the will to go on

In the end it all was deceiving

The limp lines of fate undone

That one moment, I believed

"One day, your wish will come true"

But without the wings to fly upon

Never to the stars above

Or the effulgent moon

-

Your words

Shudder of false sincerity

Proven by the silence

That there is no such thing as destiny

-

Without a single remonstrance

I leave the door of my heart

Your whispers that held so much promise

Lingers in the painful dark

-

Because from me,

You have selfishly stolen the stars
