I always found myself watching you
Watching the slow and stately ivory dance
You led
On the outskirts of life
Always there
Orbiting
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

    I love this. I was going to say something about it feeling like it was stopped abruptly but then I read the last line again. Like the stopping of the tide
    no period
    this is beautiful
