A Lost Star - Poem by Jazmin OK...

We lost a star
That day you decided
I wasn’t worth it
I guess there’s
So many other girls out there
For you
To love

I lost a star
Your interests
And all the fantasies
That lived in us
Our plans,
To be together
Me and you

We lost a star
I thought
But maybe it wasn’t a star
Maybe our promises
Weren’t promises
Maybe everything I believed you said
Was just a dream
I guess you were
Too good
To be true

We lost that star
I bet you’ve found
Another one
Or do you have
A whole galaxy?
I hope
I will find someone
That shines as bright as you did
If only he could
Lose his shine.

We lost a star
And I just wanted
To tell you
I missed that star.

    This poem touches the heart, as it is meant to. There is a Hollywood film with Nicolas Cage and Cher in which she cannot commit herself to love because of past disappointments, and he gives this impassioned speech in which he declares our hearts are always broken, again and again, because they were made to be broken. Why is that so? Because we were made to feel more love than can ever be given in return. That is a sobering idea but over time I think we have to accept it. Keep this poem in a book or case somewhere so that you can find it, re-read it and be assured of the heart's resilience. It will restore you. I am finding it resonates for me as I think about some recent poems I written about long-ago relationships that failed. I - perhaps purposely - did not confront those experiences with the candor you display in A LOST STAR. I cannot say this poem is one of hope or despair. It occupies a unique place above both of those reactions. It contains both hope and despair and transcends both of them. (Report) Reply
