Single Star - Poem by Jessy Liz

“Single Star”

I look upon a starry night
Above the heavens I see a light.
And in that moment I feel it there:
That persistent ache; I feel so bare.
I can’t deny it; it’s too strong to resist,
So I stare into this brilliant bliss.
And among the clouds a light shines on;
So bright at first, but then it’s gone.
And I sense it, in my soul,
That dulling pain we share and know.
That’s when I felt it, so persistent,
In the sky a single star that night....
Was fading from existence.

    that was fantastic, as you had sucked me into that moment of calm in which you knew the truth but kept it in fantasy.

    i love it
