The Night Sky

It's where it all happens
Where the secrets are spread
When the lies are told
And the crimes are committed

Hidden under a heavy blanket
Littered with millions of stars
All dying
All dimming
All darkening the sky

It's scary and large
Frightening to the unknown
Terrifying to those who are safe

But him and I, we're friends
We talk
We concentrate, contemplate, and consider
The possibilities that he can bring
That he can deliver
That he can hide.

It's Normal

I can feel it,
I can feel the burning betrayal
Coursing through my veins.

Slowly making its way into my heart.
A little bit each day crumbles,
A little bit each day falls away.

Its worse you know,
How close you really are.

It would be okay if you were miles away
I could blind myself with hope.
Chalk it up to the distance.

But you’re right there
So close I can reach out
And just miss the wisps of air
you stir up behind you.

I’m not obsessed
I tell myself that everyday.
I tell it to myself
to make me feel normal.
That this hurt, is normal.

I try to let you go
and in the process I reminisce.

About all the times we spent together
About all the things I told you.

And it takes time to realize.
Even if I let you go,
I won’t have to let go of the memories.
I can keep those
Even if you choose not to.
They can be mine and mine only.
A secret that can spurt
The tiniest shreds of joy.

You changed
And I will accept that one day
But for today
I want to remember yesterday.
