The star that I used to know

There she is sitting pretty in her book

The book that I gave her

How can she glow when I am so broken?

My shattered heart cannot take it

But the world still pulls me in her direction

My feet walked towards her

I do not know what to say

She looked up

Her eyes so brown and deep

“How can you leave me like this?”

I asked in silence

Heaven does not hear my woes

No answer, just plain quietness

I am so mad

Mad at things but not at her

How can I hate such a beautiful creature?

She, who stole my heart away

But then decided to break it anyway


She was the star that I used to know

The star that I can never have, again
