Starless Night - Poem by Chance Hughes

Starless night,
Starless night.
So dark,
So forbouding.
Take me in,
Never let me go.
Take the pain,
The emotion,
Take it all.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In The Interior of Alaska a sky full of clouds during the winter acts as isolation to keep the heat in, however it hides the stars. Such was the type of night I wrote this poem. Now my friend had just been broken up with, in the middle of a party, I however was not around to provide any form of comfort; my ex-girlfriend, whom i still had feelings for was. They started cuddling and holding hands I sat with them mainly to be supportive of my friend, at some point I couldn't take it anymore. I walked outside and stared at the sky, the rest as the say is history.
