This night sky…

This night sky

this dark deserted sky

I feel it’s a bit off

seeing me so full

of everything one could ask for

and the sky

missing the one it longs for

Does it know

you’ve got to seem full

to not feel empty inside?

Does it see

everything I hide within

things that lurk under my skin?

This night sky

It’s beauty far and wide

blessed with a million stars

cherished by poets and alike

and look,

look at this heart of mine

so lost in despair

pining for the one

it can never have

I guess

We are alike

this night sky and I

we miss what isn’t

and blind to what is
