The porch light was dim

Stars scattered throughout the blanket of darkness that coated the sky

Watching as our breath drifted away from each other

The apple fading in your eye

 

 

No clouds in the sky

Just emotion and the inevitable sitting between us

The man in the moon saddened

From watching something so perfect transform into what was

 

 

I felt lonely sitting next to you

My hands holding me as if to comfort me

Your head

d

o

w

n watching as your tears formed an icy puddle on the concrete

 

 

My body burning from what nature had called December to be

Anger in my eyes as I fixed my eyes upon the heavens

Your reasons for this parting were unacceptable to me

A release to please the flesh

 

 

My heart was given back beaten

Bruised from crippled promises

Slain from Love’s sword

Discarded because of your selfishness

 

 

Our breath disappear into the night

The stars don’t seem as bright

Her icy puddle grows larger

The swelling of my eyes blur my sight

 

 

Her hand reaches for me

I stand and stare at what use to be

The numbness from the weather runs parallel with my heart

From Heaven I depart
