Fallen Star


They could never understand
what you set out to do
instead they chose to
ridicule you
when you got weak
they loved the sight
of your dimming
and flickering starlight
How could they understand what was so intricate
To be loved by so many so intimate
they wanted to see your lifeless corpse
this way could not alter the course
of ignorance that they have set
to make my people forget
what they have done for much too long
to just forget and carry on
i had loved you forever because of who you are
and now I morn our fallen star
