Nights Sky - Poem by Bill Bob

I know it’s not in my power to stop the stars from falling,
But perhaps I can not look at them as they do,
You said some beauty lay within the spirit of the twilight,
That forever was written in the constellations,
When I needed you, you told me to look toward the night’s sky,
However every time I do it seems like all you said was a lie,

Broken and bound by this mortal pain, with hollow thoughts that drive me insane,
Caught between the truth and your eternal lies, I watch my hope disappear through teary eyes,
You said some loves can last forever, that there was eternity for us if we endeavour,
Well if this is love I couldn’t bear hate and I cannot make this rage abate,
You abandoned me in this darkening tomb when you left me far too soon.

The stars fall as their trails rip apart spaces fabric,
Tearing my hope as they come crashing down,
You said our dreams lay intertwined with the crepuscular hour,
That infinity lay weaved inseparably with our love,
But when the stars fell, forever began to end,
With Time split asunder never to mend,

Here alone in this dawning hour draining life and will power,
Remembering memories that my present cannot seize,
Times where we lived and played free,
Times where you and I felt that our love would never die,
Times that abruptly ended one day in the most final way,

And I know it’s not within my power to turn back time,
But perhaps I can ignore it as it passes,
I once said that beauty lay with the dawning day,
That our love was illuminated by the gentle light,
But now all the dawns fail to rise,
As one night under the auspices of the night skies, we said our last goodbyes.
