A poem exploring the emotional landscape of loss and longing

Eclipsed Stars

by Krissso

The Sun comes up

and I think of

the last day we ever shared.

The Sun rose that day too.


The Sun goes down

and I think about

the first night we spent apart.

Losing you

was like if the sky

went from blue straight to dark.

No orange

No pink

No clouds shaped like sharks

When I lost you

I lost the starlit sky

Only darkness 

in the manifold

of glaring beady eyes

That was the first night

they no longer felt like mine


Did it change or had they

always been in disguise?
