stars

by damommza & sunovawot

How cold and lonesome is the night
with stars that never meet
yet all watch Cassiopeia
as she reclines upon her seat

and burning bright the stars will wait
for eternity to unfold
then burn themselves out, one by one
spinning blackness from their gold

but yet we see them, so long gone
their light still travels onward
like the love you took from me
after my soul was conquered

the light once seen, the heat once felt
both gone beyond our ken
and I am left a man alone
lost to my fellow men

what stories could the night skies tell
if only they would deign
the spark crushed out, the death of love
the tears that fell like rain

I have no need to view the skies
those bright orbs have no power
to cast illumination on
this cold and lonesome hour

      Thank you adaein3! This was started at 3am, when the stars were bright, even though it was snowing, and I was wondering if the light I saw was from stars that had long since died… 😀

    The two of you always amaze me with your talent! You lead me on word by word and world by world and then I end up somewhere entirely unexpected. Love it!
