Title Unknown
by Nancy

My sad starry sky
how you run from these wishes
fleeing from fearful hope
only to shake off these burdens
into the pure night the
shadows it carries
the shadows of a doubt
of the many who believed in you
dreary night
cast away your selfishness for once
and make my wish come true

freezing dreams quiver
in your soundless mind
heading towards your arms of constellations
and anything
and everything
near you

I watch you shoot away
my dream I made
running from me
-losing hope
 -losing my light
that once guided me
my north star
you are not so bright as you once were
but I will keep searching the sky
for your stolen gleam
