Losing Love - Poem by Vanessa Kingsley

The golden days of happiness
faded into the era of night
Laughs and smiles faded into
Sobs and grimaces
The uncontainable joy dissipated
into a consuming sorrow
Despairing and controlling
it fed upon me
Leaving me raw
Time seemed incomprehensible
It slowed and quickened
Until I quieted the sobs and manipulated the despair
I found a bright a light in the darkest of evening
Found joy in the mysterious beauty of despair
Slowly, but surely, I started to become…ok
Yes. I lost my first. My only love
But in return found it was ok
The moon became the sun
The stars became my lovers
The wind brought back my laughter
The clouds brought back my smile
And when the pain of losing love finally faded away
A new world came into view
