But I was used to finding something deadly in things that attracted me; there was always something deadly lurking in anything I wanted, anything I loved. And if it wasn't there ... I put it there myself. ~ John Knowles

Like the stars on my bedroom ceiling, our light went out.
It was our time to stop shining and move on.
When I first looked up and saw my shimmering stars had vanished;
I was somewhat afraid.
Scared that if they could go out that fast; what did it mean for the rest of us?
Could our light go out just as quickly?
Or would we slowly fade to black?
Either way, I guess all of these revelations, questions, and their outcomes I'm going to have to accept.

The author's comments:
I wrote this when I was recovering from a broken heart, and I had finally started to accept that it was time to move on.
