Release


In the hushed privacy of night
my heartbreak at last overflowed
bursting forth like a wild river, undammed.

Blindly I searched the sky for the Unseeable,
for a reason no God could appease me with,
each tear drop a kaleidoscope of stars,
every suppressed sob, the lash of anguish.

The universe ran down my cheeks
in a thousand shining orbs,
each one a filled with the endless space of longing
as I silently spilled out a despair
that no starry sky could ever quell, that
no flower would ever soften,
nor sunrise consume.
