Star In My Sky - Poem by Hillary Slosky

You were the star in my sky,
A light in the dark
That I chose to follow,
Hoping you wouldn't let me fall.
You held out your hand,
And I reached to take it.
You gingerly took me into your arms,
And I couldn't help but smile.
I was happy then,
And I thought you were as well.
Or Perhaps it was pity
And not the love I thought
That was within those words
You once spoke to me.
You let me fall,
Fall into this grave,
Into which you soon followed.
You took the bloodied blade,
Relieved it from my chest,
As if to apologize
For the void that resides within it.
Eventhough I asked you not to worry,
About what had happened.
But I know I can't complain,
Because In your arms I lay again.
As for the star that I followed,
He pierced his heart,
To follow me into the darkness.
Your light vanished,
As now you lay with me,
Forever in death.
