The Stars Are Lighting Up For You

The stars are lighting up for you,
But you don't even care,
I'm singing all my songs for you,
But you're hardly even there,

My life is full of sleepless nights,
Haunted by that could-have-been,
I stare up at the ceiling,
And feel your touch against my skin,

I remember every single kiss,
And every single word,
Those kisses seem so bitter now,
And those promises seem absurd,

Your lies taste sour on my tongue,
But I swallowed them all the same,
All I wanted was to believe,
That it wasn't just a game,

I'd shout it from the rooftops,
I'd make sure everyone knew,
I'd write 'I love you' in the clouds,
If you only loved me too,

I realise now that it's all a joke,
I got caught up way too fast,
The best times I can remember,
I should have known it wouldn't last,

I'm lighting up those stars for you,
But you don't even care,
I'm screaming all my songs for you,
And you're not even there...

Beautiful words there, Amber. Your words speak truth i expect only one to have experienced such longing can describe. Your poem touches my heart, as another who has felt the longing for reciprocated love. I hope that one day, your poem may be just that, a poem, and that your longing for another who loves you as you love them comes to fruition. Until then, bravo for your touching words and your magnificent poem. Your words have graced this avid readers screen.
