i haven't had the heart
to stare at the stars, lately.

do you remember, darling
we used to sit in the window
waiting for the first flicker
of light to adorn the sky
( diamante on the only
evening gown worth wearing,
you always said )

the first to spot starlight
got to make their wish
and day in, day out,
just as the sunset blush
of dusk began to fade,
i would press my lips to yours
and i would whisper wonders
in your mouth and i would
keep my eyes wide open

you knew exactly what game
i played, but you always,
always let me win.

lately, i've taken to hiding
away when the crepuscular
glory of sunset dissipates
i've taken to sanctuary in
the grey of clouded evenings,

and if i venture out after
dark, i cannot help but to
keep my eyes closed tight;

i haven't the heart to
meet the constellation gaze
of wishes wasted, lately.

I understand avoiding the crap out of things that just seep with memories of a lost love.  I'm sorry you have to deal with this.

I have to say, this one is technically a work of fiction; one of the very few fictitious poems in my gallery. However, the sentiment is all too familiar, and I'm sorry that you understand the emotions. *hugs*

I love how you managed to express the personality of the pair in so few words. :)

hmm, I really like the voice in this. strange, I don't normally hear any particular voice when I read pieces but this one had a distinct one, whether it be your actual voice or not.

lovely piece.

thank you so much! this is one of the very few pieces in my gallery that *isn't* about me or in my voice, so i'm glad the character came across in it <3
