"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"


The sun goes up
and the sun goes down,
and we watch it go
and we let it go.
We let everything go,
we have no choice--
we just watch it go--
and sometimes
there is no "good-bye."

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

this sure is nice. And the title is wonderfully suited and I like it even more as if reminds me of this song I heard recently on the suggestion of a friend "Glad You Came" by "The Wanted" ,, the lyrics go as such : "The sun goes down The stars come out And all that counts Is here and now My universe will never be the same I'm glad you came"  So you mus get why I somehow sang your peom :P Apologies. And well, the last five lines were epic!

I like the simplicity of this poem, and I think the meaning comes across quite clearly. Good work! :)

Earth without art is just... Eh.

I like this poem. It has a deeper meaning behind the simple text. I love when poetry does that! However, I would have personally added something more about the similarities between the sun going down and someone leaving. Otherwise, I think it's perfect! :D

I REALLY like the poem and the idea! The repetition of words really makes it meaningful (though you need to capitalize each word at the begining of each line). My only suggestion is that it would be nice to see a more descriptive stanza before that one. Or it could be cool if you started with that stanza you wrote, then wrote a really descriptive stanza and then ended with your begining stanza. That could be cool.

Sad, lovely, and meaningful

I like the feeling of unwillingness to let go but also that knowing that there's no other choice. Very simple but relatable.
