Songs without Music (Poetry): Heavy Stars

Forgive me the fall

of the then rising sun

as the blood in my soul

runs cold

looking inside myself

seeing dreams

fall like stars

as they had once

called me eyes to gaze upon them

the light fading

while they once bathed me

in bright light

and in passion

and hope

only now has their

illumination transformed

into burden and weight

dread upon my shoulders

and heart

pulling me down

with the gravity of my fears.

(written 2005)
