a moonless existence

April 26, 2020


I always found myself watching you
Watching the slow and stately ivory dance
You led
On the outskirts of life
Always there
Comforting like the sight of a flower in Autumn
Comforting like the inevitability of the oceans pull
I always found myself watching you
Watching you waltz with the stars
I always felt
That you were somewhere black as night
Bright as diamonds
Somewhere far from this world
Yet always in the corner of my eye
In the moments when I couldn't find
Your pale watchful face
I felt like a ship lost
Without anchor on a starry sea
Cast asunder
Without a satellite to guide me
That is how I feel now
The night is darker than ever
And the stars mock me with their light
Desolate like dead flowers in spring
Like the stopping of the tide
