Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light

I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

-“The Old Astronomer” by Sarah Williams


You were different from the rest.

You chose me. Out of everyone. I chose you, because you were special. You were different. Amazing.
You took my breath, you kissed it, you wanted it.
You held my hand, fingers entwined, promises.
You took my time, sweet nothings, false dreams and hopes
You stopped my heart, stole it, broke it.

You broke the perfect mirror image I built of you and it shattered in broken pieces around me.
I step in the broken fragments everyday, wondering what went so wrong.

What happened to you, what happened to the other half of me? We were one, a team, a unit.

And now

There’s nothing.

Worse than strangers.



Being forgotten is like a wandering ghost.

The memories that were shared.
The emotions that no one else made me feel.
The promises you made; your little finger entwined with mine.

How sad it is, that nothing really ever lasts.
